The latest guild challenge is exactly that . . . . a challenge. The project is a Journal Quilt. What is that, you ask. Well, it is many things:
1. The size must be 8 1/2" x 11"
2. The design tells the story of a personal experience (as one would document in a written journal), and can be happy or sad. (i.e. family vacation, wedding, move to a new home, illness, birth of a grandchild, etc.)
3. It is an opportunity to be creative using design and embellishments.
So please join us in making your own journal quilt to be hung on stage at the September meeting. Please include a brief written description of the inspiration (story) of your quilt.
I have a book with hundreds of quilts shown and is called Creative Quilting, The Journal Quilt Project by Karey Patterson Bresenhan. Look it up online or just query Journal Quilts for more ideas. Posted here are photos I took at the Long Beach Quilt Show a few years ago.
Look forward to seeing your quilts,
