Journal Quilting




For a very long time, I have been planning on 'one day' doing some exercises from all those delicious books on my bookshelf. Well, finally the day did come where I made a start. I followed the instructions in Bonnie McCaffery's "Portrait Quilts" book, and above is the result. Come up rather nice, and I am very pleased with myself for having done the exercise. Now to dig out another book.....

Fabulous! To paraphrase the ad for margarine: "I can't believe it's not an oil painting!"

Hi Bernadine
Love the portrait quilt, what a great job. I have been meaning to do the same thing, so many books and ideas, so little time. I also have the portrait book and really would love to have a go. You may have inspired me! fantastic, thankyou for showing it.
