April 9th, 2007 * Journal Quilt Number 14 *
Today, after dinner on Monday night I remembered I needed to do my journal quilt, tonight! Usually I keep this project in mind and think about what I might do the week before, but not this week! So, I went into my studio to see what I could come up with on the spur of the moment. I had worked a lot on a mixed media collage last week, and so I thought I’d use some elements of that piece on the journal quilt. Recently, when dropping samples off at
Sew Inspired Quilt Shop where I will teach two classes soon, I bought a small amount of interesting “computer” print fabric. I thought that would be fun to work with, since my art and the computer go hand in hand these days. I kind of have a love-hate relationship with the computer and so it’s appropriate that fabric serves as the background for this quiltie.

On the right hand side of the piece, top and bottom are elements from my collage I‘ve been working on
– some marbled paper and a piece of the image transfer I used. The black trim with the white stitching, the image of the woman (paper) the heart charm and the “sewn art” stamp on the green fabric are all from Alpha Stamps. The black half-circle across the piece is actually black millinery wire, also from Alpha Stamps. The rounds stamp is from CatsLife Press – all stamping done with VersaCraft Inks. The turquoise blue coloring on the fabric is dye-na-flow paint by Jacquard. I am glad I made myself create this.

  1. Hi Lenna! I love this! The combination of the very industrial black and white type fabric with the more lyrical images is really outstanding. I love the freshness of the green and blue against the black and white background, and that arc on the right creates a very balanced composition.
