Don's Wonky Leaf Quilt


Almost finished. I have the binding made and will machine it on tonight. Then I can sit by Daisy the rest of the week and do the hand stitching on it. Beautifully quilted by Judy! Don's going to love it!

I haven't figured out how to adjust colors on this camera yet. But, hey, at least I can get them to post!

Busy day at work today. Then high wind warnings posted on all the lighted signs on the freeway coming home. It's really howling, and the leaves are totally covering my front stoop and sidewalk. Daisy was up to her chest in them when we walked out the door tonight. Of course, with four inch front legs, I guess they weren't that deep!

Gratitudes:

* Convictions
* Chipotle cashews
* A roaring fireplace

The leaves look great. I guess they match the ones flying around outside.

That quilt is just lovely!!! I'll bet Daisy hates it when it snows. Not too much and she would be knee deep!

Just beautiful Vicky! I know he will love it. I really like that particular leaf block better than most of those that one sees. I like the wonky setting also - makes them look like they are blowing in the breeze.

That's a really nice quilt Vicky! And how funny that you're getting wind at your house. I only live about 10 miles from you at the most, and we haven't even had a single leaf move! Anyway, makes for good quilting weather!

I love using a tilted setting like you used on your quilt. It adds so much movement to a quilt. Don is going to love his quilt.

Love it. Is there a pattern? My husband wants an autumn leaves quilt and this might be just the thing. I know you love applique, so was this more hand work than machine work?
