Quilty 365: Marginalia


Marginalia
Nov 4 - 8


I was thinking of ideas for a quilt journal project for next year and I was trying to decide on an applique project for next year and then up pops Audrey of Quilty Folk with Quilty 365.   

I'll call my project Marginalia. I'll be writing in the margins about daily life and the circle fabrics will depict something to go with the marginalia.  I've been blanket stitching with two strands of embroidery floss and writing in the margins with a pigma pen and ultra fine sharpie. 

I started right in because if I didn't I never would.

I love Audrey's idea, and I love yours even more. What a beautiful diary you will have! (And will you be able to stop at the end of the year?)

How wonderful to see how you're getting on already! I'm only on day 3 now - I decided not to do a catch up because I can't remember much from yesterday let alone 10 days ago, haha! It's going to be so exciting to see everyone's different take on the idea. Yours is, as Kaja says, fantastic! Can we have a close up next time so we can see your marginalia?!

What an inspired idea to actually write on the block! I "joined in" a couple of days ago and probably should find a few moments to begin today.

What a great idea to make it even more of a journal quilt. Wonderful!
