I can't believe I am at the end of my Journal Quilt project! Here are the last 3 quilts in the series.
This is my December 16 journal. Most dyers are familiar with the work of Carter Smith. He is very well known for his shibori silk garments. He also sells scraps and I bought some! I decided to use a few of them for a journal quilt as a way to make myself break into the box. It's a big box of scraps and contains a little of everything from small bits to fat quarter sized pieces and they all are spectacular in patterning and color. I can't wait to make something else with them!
This one is my December 23 journal. I wanted to use one of my new Go! dies so I picked the chicken/rooster and eggs.
After I made the last one I put all 51 journals on the wall to see them together. Then I printed this image on fabric and created the very last journal.
I used the printed image to create the numbers for my last journal.
I am so glad I did the journal quilts this year. Certainly some are much better than others but then some weeks are better than others too! I will not be doing journal quilts in 2012 - one year is ENOUGH! But we are doing the color palette challenge so check back tomorrow for the kick off of that.
