It's Free Motion Friday and time for a new design! This one is called Outlined Leaves. You can find the written directions for it here.
I love leaves and since it's winter and snowy outside. I miss the leaves! But the snow is fun to play in for the kids. And it looks beautiful. Especially when I don't have to go anywhere!
Start by stitching in the ditch around the block. Then make a leaf shape about 2 inches in length.
Add three veins to the bottom of the leaf.
Outline the leaf two times about 1/8 to 1/4 inch from the edge of the original.
Travel to where you want to start your next leaf and make another following the same steps.
Here's the first 4 leaves I stitched.
And the final block! It's hard to believe that there are only about 10 blocks left on my quilt!
I hope you get to quilt today!
