Vines and Leaves

I'm adding some applique to this quilt!
I cut some leaves Free hand
and am adding them
ONE by ONE
on to that curvy vine!
 
The light border I'm putting them on is
a VERY generous 10" wide.
LOTS of room to play!!!

I pinned them on HERE and there.
I don't think this kind of applique
needs or WANTS a pattern.
 
Leaves are ALL so individual in REAL life!

See my use of THREE different white/lights??
First there was the muslin pieced with the triangles.
THEN
There was the muslin with sparkly freckles!
A gold sashing.
And then.....
a very light white/gold floral.
 
THAT, my friends, is what you do
when you have LOTS of fabric
but NOT lots of the SAME fabric!!
:)

I'm almost done with the purple leaves.
I'll switch thread color soon
and work on the greens.
Hey!
I might even get busy and make some BERRIES!!!
I think they'd be VERY happy in this quilt!

  2. Lovely - I love it all! Berries will be a sparkle! Love the pinwheels. Are they all from one varigated fabric? They go so well together.
