Journal Quilt Project - Week 6 - and little boxes



So today, here's what I did - first, I made two boxes - I sort of felt obliged to do that today, as it was Boxing Day and all - then I decided to take all the leftover off cuts from the boxes and sew them together to form the base of a journal quilt for this week. Added some MetaMica paint, some decorative stitching and a bunch of bits and pieces in purple and silver, and hey presto. I think next week I may be moving on to another colour, though - I've had enough purple for a few weeks...

Ditto moi aussi! I like your journal quilt too. I think a penny has just dropped for me about these journal pages. Thanks for switching the light on!

Great idea to use up the scraps. I love your journal top and the little boxesturned out good. Judi

The journal quilt is really nice! I have a pile of left over bits from all of my boxes and have been thinking of what I could do with them. This is a good idea!

I love these little boxes. The first time I made one I didn't enlarge the pattern and it turned out very small.
