Joy Journal Cover - Project Quilting 10.5

I loved this challenge - Abecedarius.  My project was inspired by a friend's experience that she shared with me.  She was having a tough day, but when she was stopped at an intersection she saw bubbles floating by and was reminded of all the joy there really was in life.  I have wanted to make something inspired by this story, so decided to make a journal cover featuring the word “Joy” along with floating bubbles.

This is my finished journal.  I really enjoyed the time I spent creating this, and I love the results - I give a lot of the credit to the lovely Island Batik fabrics that I used.

Here is the back.

And the front flap and pocket.
My journal cover measures 10.5 inches high and 7 3/4 inches tall. The lettering and bubbles were attached using fusible web and two rounds of topsttitching (the thread is Aurifil 50 wt in bright green)
 I created this in my Coos Bay home - I'll be linking to the Project Quilting 10.5 challenge page - make sure you visit and vote for your favorites this week!
