Contemporary textile artists and their journal quilts.

I am still poking around finding journal quilts they have become quit fascinating as documents of our time. Since my last post on this topic I have had a response from June Underwood. Needless to say I took a look at her site. Having just made it through another hot Australian summer I responded immediately to a journal quilt made in August 2002.

Exploring these journal quilts is leading me into nooks and crannies of the web I have not previously explored. Gloria Hansen is another quilter who has also made journal quilts. Her training in graphic arts is easily seen in the bold geometrics her larger quilts display. The smaller format of the A4 size has not cramped her style as although other techniques such as inkjet printing and beading are employed, geometrics still regularly appear through her journal quilts.
