Mini Quilts continued

 I'm still making little mini quilts and loving the little explosions of colour, soon have enough to sew together to make a journal cover. 
 I've been making a sewn together collage for a friend's son, using pamphlets and flyers picked up on their visit to Nantes, France and the Jules Verne museum.  It's been a while since I used this technique and it was nice to revisit it.  I also found an old copy of a Journey to the Centre of the Earth and used pages from it to add into the mix.

I just love the quilty furrows I got by stitching parallel lines on the larger, back page of my journal.  I'd love to use this effect on a larger quilt, maybe make something to throw over the sofa, mmmm............. too many ideas and so little time (as usual, lol).
