Journal Quilts 2005 - we had to make a journal quilt for each month between January and September, experimenting with new techniques and ideas. The journal quilts had to be 8 by 11.5 in size; at the end of that period we had to choose five which were then sent to Houston for display at the International Quilt Festival there.
