Autumn Leaf Warm-up




I used this wonderful tutorial for an oak leaf and acorn to warm up.








It's available at: http://theinboxjaunt.com/2014/10/14/the-oak-leaf-and-acorn-free-motion-quilt-tutorial/




  And the finished motif with an additional line of quilting around the leaves.  I used a piece of my own hand-dyed cotton sateen, a wool batt, and a bit of decor-bond to stabilize the back. I think it would be nice as part of a bag.

Wow... as usual, I love the fabric!!! (I even had my pieces... out a few weeks ago, but just couldn't make the CUT!!!) So I petted them and drooled... and then put them away.
