Journal Quilt #14

Coffee Break (Journal Quilt #14)
Fused cottons, free motion quilting, raw edge finish

This is my first journal quilt in three weeks. As I mentioned a few days ago, I took a short break from doing them and it felt good.....refreshing. Taking on a weekly challenge can be, well, challenging at times and right from the start (at the beginning of the year), when I decided to do a weekly journal quilt, I gave myself permission to not get in trouble if I missed doing some. Oh and I know I wouldn't get into trouble if I missed some, because there are no weekly journal quilt police.

In keeping with my self-imposed journal quilt rules....I used only pre-fused scraps on this one. I created the design as I went. Usually I will pre-draw my plan onto the batting and then cover it with fabric, but this time I decided to just let the fabric do it's own thing.
