Busy Time

Had a busy couple of weeks. I completed a log cabin quilt, out of my stash. (Only had to buy the wadding.)

Also made a sign for my workroom door......

Why the hooks? Because I plan to make a Journal quilt every month, and hang it from the sign. I want to try new techniques (or develop existing ones) and a Journal quilt is a manageable size. 

However, the first one wasn't made this month - it was done on a trip to Cornwall in April, but I have only just finished it off.

Fabric was transfer printed using leaves as a mask, then machine quilted around the leaf shapes. I added a green sheer fabric on top, and hand and machine stitched the background. I'm pleased with it.
