Journal Quilts for 2009 are 6" x 12" (for the Contemporary Quilt Group), I've forgotten to post these for you to look at..... they are bound with black bias binding which really sets them off. I have three larger hangings in this style which I will photograph sometime soon (and another in progress and plans for yet another few). Not sure what I will do for the September JQ - better get thinking as we are more than half way through the month. I might carry on working in this series.... or I might start a fresh set of ideas.....
If I can think of any that is.
These works are made with hand dyed silks,rayon, silk cotton mix and silk velvet. Dyed with procion dye. Grey threads are Anchor (or was it DMC?) 6 stranded using two strands and Mulberry Silks red silk thread (my favourite in the whole wide world to use). The metallic machine thread used in June is from Madeira.
My "flu" is still with me - sore throat and an annoying cough now.
OK, back to the new Dan Brown book that I started at 6am this morning..........
