Quilt Journal Page #6

I'm off to The International Quilt Festival in Houston, but wanted to post my last quilt journal page before departing.  They were photographed quickly as they hang on my apartment-sized design wall - a little crooked.

This page was created with the thermafax screens that I made last month and thickened procion MX dyes.  I loved the technique!  The image of the models was a green dye print and then I free-motion stitched it in black.  All of the other stuff in the background was printed from other screens. 


Here are the first 6 all hanging together.  I will definitely go back to do a little more quilting, but I'm trying to keep the creative momentum going.  I have at least 4 more ways that I want to try to transfer images of the model to fabric.


I have a blog post comparing Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and watercolor washes in the Strathmore Visual Journals that will be automatically uploaded while I'm gone.  I didn't think my husband would step-in to post it!  But I won't be able to moderate comments until I return on Sunday. 


Lovely grouping of small quilts...great color and texture!

I'm really enjoying you work. Thanks so much for posting. Do you have your own Thermofax or are you getting the screen done elsewhere? I've tried to snag one, but the prices are through the roof.

A wonderful set ! Great job !

Have a good time! These really look wonderful especially together. Keep up the good work.

Glad I read this before leaving. I am going to bring my computer though! See you soon.

OH, lucky you! Have a great time! And these pages are wonderful!!!

Have a wonderful time! Your quilt journals are great! I love the textural affect you got with the thermofax.

These are absolutely incredible. I am not a quilter nor have i worked with fabric in art journaling--yet. Have a great time at your quilt show.
