journal quilts


karey and pokey are teaming up to produce
a book of journal quilts.... how karey narrowed
down the hundreds adn hundreds of pieces
that have been exhibited in houston over the
last several years is beyond me! i;ve seen most
of them at houston and have always thought it
was one of the best exhibits there ....
i'm thrilled that my january "03 piece will be
included. it is one of my favorites!
i started with a section of my hand dyed fabric
that i really liked, and began layering...first i
couched vertical lines of various yarns, then
trapped bits and pieces of silk fibers, etc., under
tulle (doing several layers of this)....then, to
unify the piece, i covered it entirely in tulle and
closely stitched a loose grid over the entire thing.
except for that small image at the top, which
from day one looked like a person diving into the unknown....... a perfect metaphor!
