Speaking of Quiltlets

 Have you seen Lyric Kinard's  "Surface Design Sampler Platter? It's a wonderous DVD with sooo many fabulous and creative ideas. Lyric's a terrific teacher and very talented. After watching her DVD again (there are so many techniques to try!) I was inspired to make this sketchbook cover for my Moleskine Watercolor journal  Really easy and amazingly clever construction. And as you can see, I used one of my Quiltlets.

Speaking of Quiltlets, are you going to the Quilt Festival in Long Beach? I'm teaching Quiltlets: Very small quilts for short attention spans on Thursday, July 22: 9am-noon. Create a tiny, hand painted quilt of your own design using simple materials. I will gently guide you to draw your own design or trace a copyright free image onto cloth, then paint and hand stitch, using some fun basic embroidery stitches. Your creation could be used on it’s own as embellishment for a jacket or tote, or create more for a larger piece. 
Wanna win a FREE spot in my workshop?? (Of course, you have to be in Long Beach, California on July 22) Leave a comment. I'll select a name on July 4th.


  1. What a great idea! I hate the plain cover on my moleskines. Lyric is full of inspirational prompts. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Ooo! Me! Me! I have a notoriously short attention span!

  3. Good idea and dressing up a journal is even better.

  4. Jane.. LOVE THIS IDEA of giving away a workshop to one lucky winner...... and will DEFINITELY check out Lyric's new DVD!!!!
