My Leaf Quilt
This is the quilt we currently have on our bed. A bit different to the Kaffe Fassett eh?
This quilt was finished in September 2001 and is all hand quilted. I have dedicated it to the memory of my Mum who passed in September 1997. It has hundreds can't remember exactly how many, think over 400) of hand appliqued leaves - no two are the same. It was a joy to make and I have started another similar one. It is a loooooong term project. I seem to have a lot of them :-)

This faithful little daffodil and some of it's friends struggled through the weeds and dry old soil to brighten our wintry days. It is a sign spring is coming YIPEE.
