Quilting Journey 4 Healing

June 2, 2022 | Flyway::Messages From Below | Designing A Memory Quilt

And so my quilting journey for healing begins.  This first quilt is designed based on the pre-cut batik fabric that I brought with me from home. I’m using a Brilliant Blue layer cake by Island Batik.  I’ve matched up light and dark values.  I drew a diagonal line across the square, and stitched a quarter inch on either side to create HSTs.  I’ll cut each triangle on the drawn line to create two HSTs.

Directions 4 Participants:

Using a black sharpie write a message to the migrating birds above us as they journey between Alaska and South America.  Your message can be words, a song, a symbol, or a drawing.  You should sign your HST however you choose. Photos of each participant will be the border around the quilt.
