January journal quilt

This is my Janaury journal quilt, "Blizzard in the Forest" I am going to do a journal quilt a month with the theme especially of trees, but the secondary theme of birds. As you can see, a snowy owl is fighting the blowing snow. I hope it gives the impression of being unable to see the trees distinctly because the snow is blowing so hard -- there are hand quilted lines of silver thead and lots and lots of tiny blue beads for snowflakes. This is, I think, the only one that will have much beading; it's very tedious work.

That's a lot of beads, but I think it was worth it. The quilt as a whole is very effective, with all the elements contributing to that.

June, your journal quilt is lovely. I enjoyed being a part of the swap you hosted on Swap-Bot. (I'm freespirit66 on Swap-Bot.)

Here's a picture of the journal quilt I made for January:
