Journal Quilt - September 2006

This was the last in the series. I had a candid photo of Elizabeth with Airus asleep in the sling. It was not a great photo, but it was the only one I had at the time, so I played with it in Photoshop because I was thinking about making it into a screen that I could use to print on fabric. Turned out it wasn't really worthy of a screen, so I just used Sylvia Wier's technique for stitching figures - I put the picture next to the sewing machine and stitched it freehand on my layered scrap of satin. The satin was something I brought home from my mom's stash when I was helping her move. This is my least favorite of the group of 2006 Journal Quilts.

I liked your Picasso quilt the best of this series (all great stuff, btw), but I wouldn't sell this one short - the quilting is just great to add texture and interest. Great job!
