THE swan song



This is my swan song journal quilt. I journaled about memories of participating in the quilt journal project ...random thoughts along with random techniques...it was done with pen, ink, paint, colored pencil, thread painting, hand sewn quilting with pearl cotton...and wonky borders...and i just sewed on wild threads for the binding...
This is the original of the sketch that i used for my journal quilt ...same lady...she does look like a quilter doesnt she??? NOW WHERE did the finished product? Cant seem to find it where it should be in iphoto...darn it...

I also have three or four...no wait...up to eight journals in the traveling show from the book Creative Quilting published last year by Karey Bresnehan and Pokey Bolton at Quilting Arts. This is the one from last years string of journals. She was also in the IQF ad in Cloth Paper Scissors which tickled me to NO end. Will see if i can dig up pictures of the others...they are on my website under Journals if you cant stand to wait!!:> Pete is supposed to be there as well as several of the ones from the first journal string in was it 2001 or 2002. They were featured in Quilting Arts Magazine when the first show was over and where bought by Karey for the International Quilts Festival collection. They also were hung in the IQF Favorites Show three years ago or was it four? MY how time flies and muddles together!!

It was great to revisit this one in the display this year. I hope Karey will continue to have journal quilts in the show. They are so interesting.

I love The Swan Song, but REALLY love the garden lady with beautiful leaves for hair. Have been reading your blog for months and really enjoy your art!
