August marks the last of the 4 yellow journal quilts. After the events at the Olympics, it had to be Team GB. I was very negative before the start, expecting the spectacle to be totally dominated by the large sponsors, who seem to me to be at odds with sport and healthy living. However, I but was hooked the whole way through.

I always struggle with Bondaweb and lettering, so set myself a challenge this month of trying to get it right first time – and I did.

Commercial fabrics, gold super-hero symbols from here, applied with bondaweb, and then machine-appliqued for security. Machine quilting with variegated thread, and micro stippling in the symbols. It is a bit wavy as the border is satin stitch, but I am hoping that it will flatten once I have blocked it again.
