March Journal Quilt

textile art

The third of my Journal Quilts for the Contemporary Quilt Group.

I am learning as I do these.
Learning that I enjoy hand stitching.
Learning that I enjoy using the Gelli Plate but I don't think it will take over from my usual painting techniques.

I am also learning to be more mindful about my stitching and the marks I make on the cloth.
There seems to be a lot about this on the ol'  interweb at the moment.
Or maybe it has always been there and now I am noticing it because I am more interested.

I will finish with a detail because we always like one of those don't we!

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
