Leaves - some of them

Posted by Picasa
I have used some of my few hundred leaves to make this quilt from an Aust. Patchwork and Quilting magazine. I have bought some border fabric for it, but borders will have to wait now as we get organized for our quilt club's big event of the year - our exhibition. 
This quilt may end up on our guest bed, or it may be a gift to a family member.

I have about 250 leaves tacked ready for my other leaf quilt (which is an original design - a design in progress) .  I just love appliqueing leaves.  Boring?  I don't find it so, because when I am hand appliqueing such an easy motif, I don't have to think too much and I am relaxed and  transported to another world free of stresses.
