It's definitely not the weather for tartan and tweed but it is time to share my June journal quilt with you and it is made entirely of such materials. The challenge was set by the Contemporary Quilt Group and they set the size at 10 x 8". The other requirement was to add a small 1/2" square in a specified colour. For this month it was green. I set myself the challenge to use tartan and tweed (some from Lochcarron Woollen Mill and to do them in a folksy style. It proved harder than I had imagined to make them deliberately wonky!
The patterns are simple and I have used raw edge applique by hand stitching to add them to the background so these journal quilts are completely hand stitched (apart from the binding).
For me the most fun is added just the right vintage buttons and beads as embellishments at the end.
