Journal Quilting

Sunlit Swirls (journal quilt #3)
Mixed-media art journal quilt (fused cottons, free-motion quilted, painted)

This week's journal quilt is quite a bit different from the previous two. I did follow most of my self-imposed rules although it's a little harder to tell on this piece. For example, I still used my pre-fused scraps...they are harder to see though because I layered them all over the background and then painted over them. I also added some color to the thread-sketched focal designs on this quilt.

Don't forget that you can see the journal quilts that others are creating in the 3 Creative Studios Flickr group.


  1. I love this! The paint adds so much texture and gives it a really ethereal look.

  2. This is a great example of how to continue to add to the process to see what evolves -- the result is so beautiful.


  3. wow, she is so lovely. Really love her soft, beautiful demeanor.

  4. She looks like she has been etched on the side of a tree-what a wonderful effect!

    Every time I see your faces I wonder why I haven't tried this yet. I need to stop wondering!

  5. Wow, I love this journal, it's gorgeous
