July is dressed up and playing a tune

Summer breeze! 

Strawberries make mighty fine prints. This may well fade to browns, but I love transitions, so that’s okay! Just using the trimmed tops – we ate the berries!

Here is July’s CQ 11″ X 11″ Journal quilt. The year’s theme is ‘Text’.  This quarter the techniques all use applied colour, (as opposed to dyed colour). Here I have drawn onto the cloth with Inktense pencils, then sprayed with water. This does cause colour-bleed, but I like it. Bubble-stitching with blue and then white thread, emphasises the blurring. To focus on the lettering I have adjusted the scale of the quilting.
