Ta Dah....

Leaves in the Breeze from 'Applique Outside the Lines' with Piece O'Cake Designs

Finally finished having started it back in April . The design came from the book Applique Outside the Lines by Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins. I have made it slighly smaller than their design but otherwise followed the book. I used shirts from my stock for the backgrounds and odds and ends for the leaves. I decided to hand quilt it which took a while but I like the way it makes the quilt so soft. It is backed with a recycled flannelette sheet and I have added a sleeve for a cane for hanging it, although it may just end up on the sofa!

As you know, I like to do a bit of a 'photo shoot' and while I was trying the 'across the hedge Kaffe Fassett style' shot, I got some helpers!

Then there was a brief burst of sunshine so I thought I'd try 'leaves with leaves' ..

It was a really fun quilt to do.
