June Journal Quilt - Off Centre
The June theme is Centre. I have called the quilt "Off Centre"
I've finally finished my June journal for Aus/NZ Art Quilters. I've taken myself a long way away from my normal zone of comfort.
I racked my brains, to no avail. I couldn't think of anything. Then, last week I did some mono prints using a gelatin plate and this piece of painted fabric jumped out of the pile I made and said "pick me!"
The photo above and below are detail s of the stitching! I'm still having lots of fun with Susan Briscoe's books. I now own 3 of them. This week I bought "The Ultimate Sashiko Sourcebook".
Gelatin mono print, over printed with the mask I used.
Sashiko, Hitomezashi stitches.
And here is the finished product, hanging on the wall in our family room. I think I might leave it there. It looks right at home!
I mentioned in my last post about this little quilt that I was going to have to cut it! Well I did and I just couldn't bear to throw the off cuts out so I included them in the backing!
