I am ahead of schedule this week with my journal quilt. Here's 43/52. I whipped out my heat gun for this one! Mainly I wanted to play, so I used a plastic bag from my recent purchase at the Country Quilter. I stitched on to some white raw silk that I drew on with water soluble crayons. I melted the heck out of it, and then attached another piece of a random plastic bag that had some writing on it and watched it shrink on to the purple. Then I free-hand machine embroidered it and painted with a little acrylic paint. When the paint dried I stitched some more and then serged the edges and voila! Done!
