My Travel Journal

In March, my quilty friend Lisa and I attended a week long class with Sue Spargo. I LOVE Sue's work.  She does folk art without the primitive part and she does fab-o hand embroidery.

Here's my Travel Journal ... 


All the places we've lived are represented. Alaskan salmon, FLorida gator, Maryland black-eyed Susan,


Scottish sheep and thistle,





Lots of opportunity for stitching


And - state birds: RI - red rooster, AK - ptarmigan, MD - oriole, ME - chicadee


The owl? He was just cute so I included him.  I'm already making notes for my next travel journal quilt.

This is a fun piece to do for a class, lucky you.
I like the idea of adding the state birds and animals you saw, goes so beautifully with the tree theme.
