I have taken a million tiny stitches lately and it has been very therapeutic. It all started on my recent trip to Peru where I was inspired by the geometric shapes and bright colors. There was a sort of simplicity to things that I had the need to capture.
So I started to put the two together that lead to this journal cover.
I found it so inspiring and stress relieving that I moved on to another one, this time without batting.
Next I switched up the shape and followed up with more of the same.
Well I admit that this is no different than traditional 'Kantha' or 'Sashiko' stitching but I got into it by chance and since have been really studying this style of quilting. I even started a Pinterest board where I bookmarked good examples of of both styles. One advantage of having quilting as a hobby is you can work on whatever you like whenever you like and that is exactly what I am doing. I am not sure how long this phase will last or what will come of it but I am savoring it at this moment!
