I'm having fun quilting away the leaves. The inner leaf is slightly darker than the fill thread for the outer leaf. The inner fill is circles, swirls, and paisleys.
The outer fill is fans with a few lines going up them.
The picture below is one of my favorites because you can really see the different black textures in the leaves. The outer leaf is black leather. The inner pieces are leathers, taffeta, velvet, and satin.
More next week.
I am happy to say this quilt safely made it to the National Quilt Museum. I CANNOT WAIT to see it hanging in the museum!
