La Linea d'oro Quilt

As promised here is the finished La Lineo d'oro quilt which consists of my 12 La Linea journal quilts made during each month of 2014 for the journal quilt challenge of the Contemporary Quilt Group. You can read more about each individual one by clicking on the Journal Quilts 2014 label underneath this post or in the sidebar.

I usually take good pictures (to send for submission to various shows and exhibitions) outside during the summer months against the wall and in subdued sunlight. Sadly such things are not available at the moment so it's an indoor picture for now, just to record the fact that the quilt is finished. Photographing this one will be difficult even in ideal conditions outside as the camera is very averse to all that sparkle!

The background is a piece of lime green fabric that has been machine quilted in straight lines and then painted with white emulsion paint and sprayed with a variety of fabric paints toning in with the journal quilts. The journals were each appliqued on by hand and then more gold lines were also added in the borders, this time using machine stitching. The binding was made with the left over gelli plate printed fabrics I had used for the individual journal quilts. I had a long debate with myself whether I should hang them horizontally or vertically and as you can see the vertical orientation won the day.
