This is Lisa's wonderful little quilt!  I did some fun custom quilting on it....I wanted the quilting to be fitting for the batik fabric....and as always wonderful piecing Lisa!

I used an off white thread for all the cream fabric and a medium brown for the dark areas.  For the batting, I used double warm and white.  Perfect for a wall hanging or really make it lay nice and flat!

Six quilts in one day!

Quilted and bound these up in 1 day!  You don't want to know what time I went to bed and when I woke up to finish though! 

  Finished 15 minutes before Karen came to pick them up!  Fewww!!

Karen is so sweet, she brought pumpkin cupcakes for my family!  YUMMY!

All overall designs from the front of the machine.  Couple of swirls...couple of meanders.  I prepared the backs...prepared the binding.

I just finished Lisa's quilt and love how it turned out!  I knew I wanted to stick with the leaf theme through out!  My leaf inspiration comes from Kim S.  She's absolutely an amazing leaf quilter and I took one of her classes a few years back and bought her book Just Leaf It!  Thanks for the inspiration Kim!  I used bleached Hobbs 80/20 for the batting and a sewfine off white thread through out the whole quilt.  The only stitch in the ditch I did was around the border and I did continuous line quilting in the flying geese....except for the leafy vine parts.

For the leaf vines, I made my spine first then stitched from the bottom of the vine and up...with one side then the other. (made my petals first then put the vein in)
Lisa's piecing was superb!!  Oh so perfect and square!
