Quilt With Us

This is a picture of my first needle turn applique project! I sketched out the leaves from a very old pattern. it was pretty slow going at first, but got quicker as I got used to the technique. I also used my free motion foot to go around the leaves and do the "veins" for a first go I think that it came out pretty good ( yes, am patting myself on the back) the blocks are only 8" so you can get a good idea on how big it is.

Now on to my next project!

I think your quilt turned out fantastic. I love the colors you chose for your leaves and the way you arranged them. I've yet to do applique, but will one of these days. Great job.

I have always loved fall and fall themes, this is beautiful! Must take a lot of patience to needle turn all of those leaves. Very nice job!

Gorgeous. When you are tired of it you can send it on to me. DH and I both love fall, especially the colors. Now you can move onto other designs.
