can we talk leaves?
Since I am making my Flower Garden quilt with repros I have to work a bit harder to let the fabrics do the work for me
I don't have the collection of big bright bold prints that you find in the Amy Butler, Kaffe, Brandon Mabley, Philip Jacobs so many of the Free Spirit designers..
but I do have WONDERFUL REPRODUCTION FABRICS!
just look at these two....
no I didn't want one leaf of each...hmm what to do?
lets sew the fabrics together
are you wondering why didn't I just place the leaf right down the middle of the seam???
well think of that seam allowance I don't want that under that little stem AND are leaves perfect in nature? No!
So do you like my leaves now????
I have a feeling I will be making my own fabric pieces for quite a few things on this quilt, won't that be fun?
Off to the Lancaster quilt show tomorrow in search for bright reproduction fabrics and getting to visit with again....
Sujata from The Root Connection blog! Looking forward to it AND seeing her quilt in the show.
