July Journal Quilt

July already! And time for the next Journal Quilt. I'm making these for the challenge on the Contemporary Quilt Group who set the size this year as 8 x 10". They also wanted a square of at least 1/2" of a particular colour to appear on the journal quilts and for this month that square had to be green.
I set myself the challenge of using tweeds and tartans in my work and to used hand stitching for everything apart from the binding. So this is hand quilted, raw edge appliquéd using hand stitching and hand embellished with beads and vintage buttons.
 The idea is to make them look folksy and wonky which is harder to achieve than I had anticipated.
The binding for each quilt is made from an African fabric. They are different each month but come from the same fabric collection of Shweshwe Quilting Fabric available from the African Fabric Shop.
