52 Quilts Journal Week 2


Since I was on a role I started the week 2 quilt on Sun. For this one I chose a dark blue and gold print from my sample stash and recycled a crochet sample motif. This is the first try at crochet since I broke my wrist and the sample turned out a little large for an ATC, so here it is on my mini quilt. I stitched it on with assorted brown and cream beads and then joined it to the back of quilt 1 to make a page for my journal. Later I will join this to 2 more quilts to make a signature and eventually decide how I will bind the journal.

what a challenge Joanne ! Fabulous idea ! What about those stray buttons that we all have around or the stray sock or the one earring , OR did you see the paper that they made out of slices of veggies and dried them on fabric, really recycled that one was. I will send you that link! Love the first two pages and will watch to see what you come up with each week. Have fun! Judy

Dear Joanne,
So you are going to make a journal out of these quilts! Oh my!!! I can hardly wait to see the finished journal and I am wondering how you will bind it - but you are just FULL of ideas so that won't be a problem for you at all. I love this piece. Beautifully done with the addition of the beads!
