April Journal Quilt

My April journal quilt is a celebration of new leaves, little flowers and the return of birds. This is a collage of fused elements. The branches are a brown batik on which I had drew the limbs -- I had a card with a slightly similar design and then I improvised it to size and added extra branches. The other elements are from different fabrics in my stash, leaves, flowers, birds. The background is a prettier batik than it looks in this photo -- a sort yellow-green background with light green leaves and bits of blue like sky seen through a tree. The size is 8-1/2 x 10-1/2 inches. And you can see I did a lot of quilting and then finished with a pillow-case type back which is a very light print of flowers and leaves on white. I had the idea for a long time and when I finally got started, it went very quickly.
