This is the first journal page I have finished for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2012. It is a year long project and you have to make one journal page each month. My theme is "MEMORIES". This block memorises the trip to Scotland I made in 2007 together with friends from England, Canada, Denmark and Italy. We stayed in a cottage in Fort William with view on the Ben Nevis and made great walks through the Scottish countryside.The tartan fabrics I bought during this trip from a kiltmaker next to the Tartan museum in Inverness. The black fabric represents the unfortunate end of this holiday when I was close to the terrorist attack at the airport in Glasgow, which gave me the Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.

You can see more pictures of this project on the CQJP blog.
