Quilt Journal, Graphic Sketch

Apparently, a quilt journal is a book in which one records the details of the quilt one is making. I heard the words completely differently. Since an illuminated journal is a journal that is illuminated, a quilt journal is a journal that is quilted, right? I though it was a cool idea. I would so do this if I were a quilter.

It was a great trip … sightseeing, so much sightseeing … saw all the historic buildings .. visited museums … ate street food … saw a movie being made … rode in a cable car up to a castle … listened to music in scenic squares … time spent at the beach and in parks … time spent time looking at the stars … went to a play … had nice meal … shopping, so much shopping … it’s good to be home.

Rabbit Hole. My search did not turn up any online examples, although I’m sure folks have done this. The closest I found was a crochet temperature blanket by @lapplecrochets on instagram.


Update. Story quilts! That was the search term I needed to use. Thank you Jane. (See comment.)
