Tea Leaves Quilt Top Done
This has been on my design wall for months. Time to finish it up and move this project along! This pattern is from Quilts from the Quiltmaker's Gift or More Quilts from the Quiltmaker's Gift. These are 2 of my favorite pattern books.
Detail of some of the leaves.
It's taken a long time to get this far on this little quilt. All those leaves were cut and appliqued. I used a technique there I stitched them to a foundation fabric, then cut, turned and pressed them. Then they were all stitched with invisible thread to the blocks. After each step, I would get tired of looking at it, and had to put it away for a while.
I'm planning to machine quilt this on my domestic sewing machine at Quilt Camp in February. I have a plan for how I want to quilt it ...
