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.

Thank you all for your comments. I've been very neglectful and haven't visited this site in oh so long.

Your wreath is lovely. I am just beginning to experiment with appliqué. I hope I can be as successful.
