I am finally catching up! Today I have 2 journal quilts to share.
This one for September 16 was made to commemorate my trip to London. I raided my stasn of vintage seam binding for the British flag elements and stitched in tickets and other tidbits from my trip.
While at the V&A with Kate and Karol-Ann, I found the book Just my Type. Like anyone else who creates in Word, Powerpoint or Photoshop, I love to play with fonts. This book has lots of stories about the history of different fonts and has given me a great appreciation for the people who designed the fonts that we use and love. I learned that one of the best ways to tell the different between different font families is to look at the lowercase "g". I made this piece with some of my favorite Word fonts. I printed them on white cotton and silk organza and then layered them almost on top of each other. I used the lame between the cotton and silk to hide part of each letter.
