I came into this one late….lack of time, but I did manage to finish it up before the deadline! I do quilt on a longarm machine, but believe that lessons can be learned from any quilting method…so here I am!
You can see the tutorial by quilter Frances Moore at the SewCalGal blog. Look at the photos on the blog also – her leaves have some really cool fill designs in them!
Have I told you that leaves are not my favorite things to quilt? Maybe because I don’t think they look perfect enough….which shouldn’t bother me because no two oak leaves I have looked at on the trees in our yard are exactly the same. My perfectionism rearing it’s ugly head!
I actually like the “fat” heart leaves. I think Jamie Wallen calls them baby butt leaves or something like that. (Don’t hold me to that…. It may be a flawed memory of these leaves that I took away from his class!). I tried some flatter leaves also, but really like the rounder leaves better. I also tried some loops and curls in the upper left corner just for variety.
