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.
