Journal for May

   It's been a few weeks since I did a journal quilt.  After finishing up the borders on the batiks---no photo till I get it quilted---I needed a bit of time "in my zone".  
  So this journal was just a fun one.  I have my stack of boxes with all the  scrap strips on the corner of the table, remember I am trying to use them up.  I found 3 or 4 red/rosy  strips and stitched them together.  Then fused the back and cut out a few petals at crazy angles.  Then  I found a small piece of yellow that was perfect for the center.   I finished it off with one of my favorite garden sayings and lots of  quilted swirls. 
   Now if all my weeds in the back garden would just turn into wildflowers.....then my back wouldn't hurt from bending while I pull them out. 
   I worked on the design layout for my  summer scrap project and I am almost ready to get it started.  Just a bit more detail to work out and I'll be ready to share what I am planning. 
Happy stitching.

I like the way the petals are pieced.
