March Journal Quilt



After the terrible night we had at the hospital, I decided I wanted a guardian angel for my journal page. I cut her out of one of my hand dye scrap rags, a single shape, fused on to a dark Batik background fabric surrounded with Angelina Fibers. I sprinkled a little of the Bo Nash under the fibers to help fuse them to the fabric, & layed a piece of parchment on top to iron it for just a few seconds. The Bo Nash disappeared & the fibers fused fairly well. I freemotion quilted with Sulky Holoshimmer, & aside from her rather sad expression I'm fairly satisfied with her.

I'm sorry about your terrible day. I hope the thought of your angel comforts you as you face the tragedies of your profession. She is very beautiful!

I think her grim expression is dismay over the senseless deaths she had to watch with you. Such pain. It makes me sad too. Hang in there with strength.
