I’m going to send this to England for the Little Gems Tombola.
Above: Desert Sun Journal Quilt – more leftover scraps, this time hand painted with Procions after stitching onto a backing (shown below). I’ve then added a backing fabric, more stitching, some tyvek and celephane heated with an iron and the sun applique. I did the sun ages ago by free machining it on sheer fabric then using that to make a photographic stencil. I still have a few prints of it left. It’s been hand painted with dye after printing.
I’ve joined a Yahoo group for Australian and NZ quilters which does Journal quilts, this is for January’s topic: Heat.
I know I said I wouldn’t do any more challenges but this fits in with my aim of doing some quilts this year and it’s OK if I don’t do one every month.
