Journal Quilts

I have been making journal quilts since 2004 (12 years!) and here are some of my favourites in reverse chronological order. I have lost count of how many journal quilts I have made over the years but it's running into the hundreds, and yet, I never seem to get fed up with them.

The Last Dance
One of a pair of A4 journal quilts made for the JQ competition organized by Grosvenor Shows with the theme of Dance. They received the Runners-Up Prize.
