Paper to Draw on

About seven years ago I made a quilt for Gina. On every block there was at least one five-point star. On the quilt I made two blocks that looked like sheets of blank paper. I wrote across the top "Dear Journal" with a star because she was and is a big journal-er. (I couldn't get it to upload to this here postdango.)

Fast forward to today. I wanted to sew something that I could start and finish today. I decided I wanted to make a mini quilt that looks like a blank sheet of paper. 

After I finished the sheet of paper, I decided it needed more (and not because the quilt job looks TER-RIB-LE.) What better to do with a blank sheet of paper, than color and doodle on it? That's what I did. I bought some variegated thread and tried every single free motion quilting style I could think of. I also write a few things and drew a few pictures.

This is my finished sheet of paper. It's to scale. a regular sheet is 8.5 by 11.  This is 25.5 by 33

 I LOVE this little quilt A LOT. 
I'm going to hang it up and I'm going to use giant push pins. 
It just seems fitting.

This may be one of my favorite quilts you've ever done.
