journal quilt

On the last day of the month I was able to complete July's journal quilt. Okay, the label will be attached in August, but that is okay :-). The fabric I worked with started out as a drop cloth. Extra paint (house hold emulsion) was sprinkled over it. From freezer paper I made a template for the word 'art', ironed this onto the fabric and added black textile paint. Some random free motion quilting was added in the same design as the paint was sprinkled. As usual for this year the size is 7"x10". Title is 'Graffitti'.

Cleverly and beautifully done. Love the black letters and how they stand out agains the splash painted background (drop cloth! who'd of thought?!)
