I was inspired by a picture in a book with a vase full of leaves. I designed this on graph paper, raided my mother's stash and my stash to find all of the fabrics that spoke leaves and created this wall hanging. This is 1 of a 3 wall hanging set that I use in my living room in the fall.
The vase is machined pieced, the leaves are hand appliqued and the quilt is hand quilted in 3 colors. I wanted to stipple the background and I got a little carried away with the small stitches, so the background cream fabric looks less like fabric and more like a textured material.
