Journal Quilt

This week's Journal Quilt for www.3creativestudios.com is done on a commercial white on white print that I painted over. It's a fun thing to do with surprises when you see what the print does. Next came more of those Ultrasuede spirals I cut years ago. I love using Ultrasuede for applique, as you don't have to turn under the edges which was a problem for me. They are machine stitched with metallic. The machine quilting is in a variegated rayon and echos the spirals. The edges are finished by zigzagging a yarn to them.
