Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I love leaves, especially in the fall. I went around my yard and picked leaves and put them between wax paper to preserve them. From each of the leaves, I created a pattern and appliqued each leaf to a wreath. When I picked up this project, the ring was appliqued on and the leaves were partially finished. I worked on this for over a month and where I thought there was a need, I hand embroidered sprays of color. It is hand appliqued, hand embroidered and hand quilted and (yes!) finished.
