Weekly Square #16

Hurray! This square catches me up through last week (6/7-6/13), so technically I’m caught up with my weekly journal squares, since the current week isn’t over yet.

Would you believe this is an image transfer onto cotton batting of this painting I did a while back? I added some embroidered embellishment and a little color here and there with Prismacolor pencils.

Influences for this week’s square include: (too much?) time to think, especially about the future, while I’m lying in bed watching dreadful television: where am I going? what will it look like? How do I find (create?) the right doorway to my future?

I absolutely love this, and I really enjoy seeing your weekly squares. It inspires me to (maybe) do some as well. Beautiful!

Great Journal Square. I keep saying I am going to do this but not there yet. I love your door to the future. Good Luck!!!

This piece has such an elusive ephemeral quality about it; it beckons the viewer's imagination. Nice job! Great use of color and materials! What did you use for your transfer medium?

Thanks for letting me know the size. I'm cheating, and I'm doing my quilts by calendar week, so I'll end up with 48 at the end of the year. I'm stretching them on 1x2 frames, so they'll stand alone, forever. I like the idea of linking them together to make a year's journal, and I may do that with my 4x6 poetry quilts.
