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!
