New Journal Quilt



This is my new journal quilt that I just finished today! It is "Bring Your Own Sunshine". As you can see, I love this little vintage bird. I printed him on fabric and used home decor remnants to make the quilt. The yellow and blue are not my usual colors but they just seemed to jump out on this one. The tree limbs and leaves are wool and I beaded some green "somethings" on them. The quote: "Wherever you go, no mattter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine" is by Anthony J. D Angeto. It seems appropriate for this season of cold weather and having just moved. I miss my family and friends terribly but I know I have to make my own sunshine here in Virgina.
