My leaves have veins



All my leaves have veins! Halla-freakin-leulia!! (Yes, that is a word in Texas.) Yes, I know there is something very wrong with a person that would cut-out 300 leaves, machine applique' them down, quilt around them and then put veins on them. But don't they look GOOD?!! Yipee!!!





Now this quilt just needs a binding. But not today.




Cause we are headed to the pool! It is 99 degrees here today. Happy Quilting!!!!!

Your leaves look wonderful! And so does that yarn. Please tell me what kind it is - I have gotten myself into a complete tizzy trying to find the "perfect" yarn, and really, I just need to get some yarn and start stitching!

Becky said...

Oh! See? What did I say before? This one is a masterpiece! I totally love it and want it. May I have it please? Seriously, it's beautiful, Shelly - a total work of art.

Oh, my goodness! You went all out -- but it looks like it was worth it! Congratulations on having it done! Well, except for that binding . . .

Yes, your quilted leaves look so fabulous! You must feel so proud... and relieved! Hope you are staying cool and enjoying those yummy yarns too.

Brook said...

You amaze me, that quilt is fab-u-lous. I love how meticulous and dedicated you are to creating this quilt. I probably would have run screaming down the street before I was even 1/4 of the way through sewing the leaves down the first time!

Hi Shelly, I found you from Nifty Quilts and I have had a lovely time in your place! I want to thank you for your encouragement and inspirations about "free motion quilting" - you must have read my mind because I am always hearing "you aren't good enough" ..... well from now on, I am going to stick the girls out and keep right on going on! Thanks :0)
