songbird journal quilt....


This is for a round robin journal swap and they are fabric pieces that are 6x 8....This one is for Sanna whose theme is birds and nests and she likes blues and creams...I didnt really get the cream in, but I am hoping she likes it anyway. I started with a plain piece of canvas duck, made up some fabric paper and painted and stitched. I love the dimension that fabric paper adds to things....click on the picture and you will see a close up...I think you will see what I mean!

Melinda, I love the songbird journal quilt. It is gorgeous. You have such a talent! Thanks for sharing with us. I love the fabric beads, a great addition to the quilt. What is fabric paper? When you start with fabric duck is that what shows on the back or do you put a backing on it? Where can your art be purchase? Sorry for all the questions. Have a good tomorrow! Karen
