Can you believe there are only 6 Fridays left in the year? I need to start pondering what I want to do next year. I've really enjoyed working on the journal quilts, even when I've gotten behind. I've tried some new techniques and compositions. I want to continue some sort of challenge for next year. Anyone else interested? If so what would you like to do? One idea I was pondering is a weekly surface challenge. Sometimes the only durface work I get done in a week is the fabric I dye for the shop. I love the monthly technique days that Estelle, Anne and I have so maybe I need to do something weekly....on a smaller scale of course.
Meanwhile, here's my journal quilt for this week. I started with the green fabric. It was a piece that got a soy wax batik treatment. I first pared it with the dark gold, which I like. But it was sort of blah. Then I paid closer attention to the batiked fabric and saw some bright pink areas. I added some bring pink inserts and quilted it in fuchsia thread and I'm really taken with how well these colors play together.
Here's a close up view of the stitching and a pink insert.
