This quilted journey began with a favorite thermofax screen from Margaret Applin’s Etsy shop.
and really, what could be called ‘simple math’ — ala journal quilting style.
Add a beautiful screen print on fabric~~~
Add a word.
Adding bits of leftover strips of patchwork.
add a fun flower…
Add. Subtract. Quilt.
I adore the KISS method: Keep It Simply Slanted!
Soli Deo Gloria!
Yes, I do all the words by machine. Sometimes I will chalk a straight line so the words are straight… but more and more, I'm skipping that, and just 'letting it be' (unperfect!). It is WAY more fun. I did start to stitch in a thread color that blended too much, and I couldn't see it… so I went over Radiant in a darker color so I could see where I was going !
YES! Thank you Margaret!
I love M's screens, too, Holly! They are great inspiration!!! THANKS!
So pretty and your stitching and choice of colours is fab 🙂
Did you do your "Live" and "Radiance" words by hand or machine?
Wow that is so beautiful! I love to see what you can do with thread… it amazes me! 🙂
J'aime vos travaux d'aiguille. Merci pour le partage!
OMGGGGG, I have been sooo out of touch! I love this!!!! Your stitching is amazing as always!!! Is that in the shop????
This is beautiful! Coming over from Sneak Peek…new follower too! PS: Love your Micah!
That is so beautiful. I love it. Your stitches in the leaves are so pretty.
Wow! Really cool and beautiful too!
I love your style, the way you can take all the little bits and make something so pretty! I love Margaret's stencils too.
It's beautiful! I love how all the little added effects really create something so stunning.
Radiant. The all red in the face from yesterday's journal attempt is probably not quite what you, nor I, have in mind. You make this look wonderfully easy and it is probably from 'forcing' the creative buds that makes for 'not so radiant'. But today I'm radiating a bit more and with less 'heat'! lol I certainly appreciate your plunging along ahead and encouraging us on. Great little quiltlet! KISS, maybe I should look at my stuff with a more slanted view! LOL
Agreed! We must be open – and I love that description! Absolutely!
Thank you Teresa! You too, have a fabulous weekend…!
Absolutely beautiful – love the colors and the open lettering for Radiant! After all, we must be "open" in order to become "radiant", right? Have a great weekend!!!
