Ginkgo quiltlet


I had a bit of fun today making this.
I love leaves and collect them and dry them in the autumn, also love the colours of this season. They are so real and, well, beautiful. The fabrics are Loni Rossi and I tutued a little on the strips with paintstiks and rubbings. I tried to capture the dried ginko leaf under fine tulle, that was ok until I had to turn the quilt after attaching the binding duh! Dried brittle leaves don't like to be manipulated. Ah well, lesson learned.

This is beautiful Judith--you know if we didn't make mistakes then we would never learn anything.

Really lovely quilts - you've done a great job. And as you have started with some of my favourite things - leaves, sheer fabrics, Lonni Rossi, I find them particularly pleasing...

I love your Autumnal blocks. Very serene and the colors are great.
