My Quiltie Art Journal 2011

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!! :):)

I absolutely love the butterfly journal and the red button square. You make me want to start making quilts. I actually made a quilt way back in high school. It was shades of blue velvet in a 3D square design. it was a cover for my bed. The quilt was beautiful, but sooo much work! Too much cutting and sewing for me. I do have a passion for fabric, though.
Talk to you soon!

Oh I love the idea of the journal quilts, they are so much fun to look at and what fun it must be to play with them.

Love, love, love the fabric roses! I like the other quilties too. Journal quilts are a great idea to play with techniques on a smaller scale.

I love the kitty/house quiltie. (which is totally not surprising given my cat love). You should make a book or a postcard collection!
