Welcome to my one year project. I LOVE to art journal. (with paper and paints.) As you all know I LOVE to quilt also. So, I decided to mix both passions. My thought was instead of having a book art journal, why not a quilt art journal.??! The idea is to make a little quilt (quiltie) once a week. I will use all my little leftover pieces that I just don't have the heart to throw away. I could even use some of my scrapbook stuff too:):):) Then I will make a solid square quilt to attach all my little quilties to. Then hang it in my art room as my art journal for 2011. I did start in January and I will show you my quilties every once in awhile so you can see my progress. It is a great place to try out new techniques without wasting to much time or materials. I numbered each one as I made them. I won't show them in order or put them on the quilt in order either... . .. Hope you enjoy :):)
(# 21) I had these little red end pieces I just couldn't throw away.
(#20) Here I decided to make a little house scene with the kitty I had. By the way, this project is a great opportunity to practice your quilting technique. :):) This quiltie was made because we just bought our House.:):)
(#13) My friend Karen came over to play in my art room. She showed me how to make these really cool fabric roses. I decided to make a quiltie with them to remember the fun we had that day! :):)
(#10) On this quiltie, I wanted to try out my fabric foils I bought and NEVER did anything with. :):)
(#5) I just liked this fabric. And decided to just play with thread, beads, and hand quilting.
I will show more another time. Hope every one is having a good day!! :):)
