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 2 pieces 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.

Made in 2005

Nice quilts.  I like your colors and the use of flying geese on the borders.
