Here in Quilt City USA®, autumn is finally peeking around the corner and we love it. It’s all about beautiful leaves and cooling breezes! Take a look at some of the dramatic colors and fine workmanship on these leaf quilts from the Galleries at MyQuiltPlace.
Thanks for the close-ups, too, Ginnie. It was made about ten years ago, uploaded in spring 2014 to MyQuiltPlace.
Take a close look at STEPPING OUT by Lyn Ennis, posted in 2012. The leaves and ferns are silk and the body is made from various textured fabrics. The butterflies’ wings are free form thread painting. This wallhanging was donated to the Breast Cancer Society.
One more – are you inspired to make your own leaf quilt yet? You might be after you see this fun table topper, FALL LEAVES, added by Julie Luoma last year. The leaves are embroidered. The pieced design is innovative!
