Falling Leaves


Such an original title, I know...
I finished my leaf quilt. Well, at least I think I am finished with it. I love the beaded fringe across the bottom. The pieces that are stitched on with yarn are embossed pieces of old CDs. Fun to do! I'm pleased that it is FINISHED. Click on the photo if you want to see it close up!

That's where I found the directions for using CDs. Fun stuff!

I love your work Michelle. The quilt is fantasic and so is the cave painting. Thanks for sharing the website, I will pop over to have a look now.

when you told me you'd do the edges curvy, I thought "no way", but it accentuates the curves of the leaves........so cool -C
