Quilts

Here are two of the Journal quilts I've made for the challenge posted at http://www.3creativestudios.com/  I agreed to do 1 a month but am having so much fun that it's been 1 a week.
This is from a leftover strip of Seminole patchwork from a long Wearable Art vest I made when we were in California. I've tried to find a photo of the vest but so far no luck. Moving can do that-lose things.I'm using alternate ways to edge the quilts, so this one has a ribbon covering the edge.

The patchwork in this one was small strips left from a quilt that I sewed together into two sections and then pieced into the quilt. The fabric is hand painted. A black fussy yarn is zigzagged to the edge.

The Journal quilts are a great place to use up odd bits and pieces and also a chance to try a technique or idea without committing a lot of time and supplies.
