2007 Journal Quilt home

My 2007 Journal Quilt has arrived home. It has been exhibited at Houston, Chicago and the new show in California.

It is made from my own hand dyed fabric. I then masked, using masking tape, some areas of the quilt and roller painted it to change its colour. I then free motion quilted some areas leaving the masked area unquilted. I added seed beads and little white "rings" which have rhinstones in the centre of them. It's good to see it home again.

Funny how it feels so good to have a quilt come home!

Congratulations on having your beautiful Journal Quilt exhibited in Houston Chicago and California. You must be very relieved to have it back with you. It's probably silly of me, but I would be reluctant to trust such a treasure to the postal services of two continents. However, all's well that ends well, and thanks for sharing it with us.
