#1 of 52 Journal Quilts - The Forgotten

Jeanette Thompson of the QuiltArt list has started a challenge to create a weekly journal quilt.  She's doing it in honor of her birthday, and wants to make an artwork each week to remember this special year.  Since my birthday is near hers (in timing, if not in age) I decided to play along, as I've always wanted to challenge myself in this way.  (I do best with deadlines, even self-imposed ones!)

I decided that my weekly journal quilts will be 8x10" (in either portrait or landscape orientation), because it's such a convenient size.  I haven't decided on a theme yet, and may not.  I want to be as free as possible to do whatever strikes me at the moment, but may decide later to create temporary (monthly or quarterly) themes.  Here's my first one, a raw-edged improvisational piece, entitled "The Forgotten".  It's not a religious theme, but more a humanistic one.
