February Journal Quilt

The time as usual is flying by and it's already a new month and thus time to show you a new Journal Quilt. I am making them this year for the Contemporary Quilt Group who set the size at 8 x 10" portrait orientation. Their other requirement is to add a purple patch at least 1/2" square to each journal quilt for the first 4 months of the year.
I have also set my own "rules" in that I am using a selection of tweed fabrics, some of them from my visit to LochCarron Woollen Mill last year. I aim to give my JQs a traditional patched look while at the same time using far from conventional ways of putting my JQs together with a lot of raw edge appliquéd hand stitching.
 And of course my usual embellisment with vintage buttons and size 11 seed beads. 
And  I haven't forgotten that purple patch!
