I Love My Journal Quilt!

Ok, I've decided not to stress over my handwriting so I'm having so much fun with this! I LOVE my daily blurbs! I did the math - the original instructions come up with 368 blocks in my 368 day quilt. So, if you decide to do this, I removed 4 - 3 1/2" blocks with 2 - 6 1/2" blocks to come out perfectly!

This block confesses I scuttled back to Belle Isle for more geocaching. I'm going back tomorrow to help move 50-year old koi from the aquarium's basement to its outdoor pond.

I mean... with beauty like this... How can I stay away?

These are 2 different views of the Whitcomb Conservatory.

I'll let you know how wet I get... Those koi are slippery suckers!

Happy stitching!


P.s. Goes without saying I'll do more caching while down there!



  1. Seems a bit cold to be putting koi outside! I hope they do well. Lovely pics as usual! I'd love to do a journal quilt but I know I'd miss a couple of months and have to do a catch up. I'd NEVER remember it all.

  2. Love your pictures. I've never been there but looks like someplace I'd love to go. Love the idea of your journal quilt.

  3. Elisa, you make me laugh! Can't wait to see pictures of the koi party. Lauri


I'd love to hear from you!
