January Journal Quilt




White Carnation


This year I "signed up" with the CPS Journal Quilts group and committed to make one Journal Quilt for each month in 2007. The theme I chose was A Year of Flowers, my plan is to make an 8.5 x 11 inch quilt that features a flower for each month. I found a number of lists of designated flowers by month. (My favorite list was complied by Waverly Fitzgerald of School of the Seasons.) For January I decided to do a white carnation. Earlier this month I planned how I was going to make this piece that made it easy to sit down and work on it today. I haven't done anything for the last week and it felt good to get something accomplished!

Beautiful Kim! I like the background on this piece, the contrast of the strips of color and pattern really allow the white flowers to pop off the surface.

Kim, this is a great first installment for your series. I really like the background technique.

I like this size as it allows you to complete something quickly and/or work through a problem whether it is emotional or a technique.

Wow! Gorgeous! The three dimensional carnations are great and look so good on the uneven blue strips, the red January is icing on the cake.
