Journal Quilts

Journal Quilting book from Four Corners Designs
FC 2402

Journal quilts convey important messages of tribute, encouragement, joy, and love. Resulting quilts are cherished reminder of exciting and memorable times. Work on the quilt by yourself or with a friend. Either way, each quilt will commemorate a moment in life that won't be forgotten.

This book includes eight projects commemorating eight separate occasions: Grand Slam, Quilter's Spools, Blessed Event, Dramatic Moments, Message in a Bottle, Sweet Hearts, Thinking of You and Birthday Wishes. Each quilt makes a great gift and celebrates a blessed event in someone's life.

Capture your child's experience on a treasured quilt of their very own. Have all the players and coaches sign their name, number on their uniform, and the position they played on small pieces of fabric that can be backed with freezer paper. The resulting quilt is still a cherished reminder of an exciting and memorable time.

Diane deFreitas designed most of the quilts in this book and this one is especially meaningful to her. Her daughter, Andrea, is part of her school's play, so Diane chose school colors of the black and gold for her quilt. Imagine the fun of having it signed with autographs and messages by fellow thespians, and the delight of remembering a special time for years to come.

This quilt celebrates the life a very special young man. Benjamin Mollett, 6 years old, was diagnosed with cancer on Christmas Eve, 1998, and passes away the day before Thanksgiving, 1999. The bottles hold messages from doctors, nurses, family members, and friends and his short life is recorded there. The legacy of his smile is captured in the quilt and continues through the Benjamin Smiles program which was founded by his mother, Vicki Mollett. The program provides cheer and comfort to young cancer patients and their families by gifting them with small, brightly-colored pillows. If you wish to help by making and donating a few easy pillowcases, Vicki would love to hear from you at
