I'd been reading Sunday Morning Quilts by AmandaJean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison, and their quilt "Leaves and Vine" really stuck in my head. A pieced green background (sort of a green Scrap Vortex!) with a vine winding through and colorful leaves which were appliqued onto the background.
I wanted to make it! So I started to piece my greens together... from darkest to lightest -
And ended up with this! It measures about 17 x 18.
A dark brown batik made the perfect vine, and leaves cut from scraps to celebrate all the colors of the spring blooms in our yard right now were added with raw edge applique.
I quilted lots of branches in on either side of the vine, and if you look closely over there on the left, you might see that I even added a few quilted leaves!
Our beautiful Spring Snow Crabapple tree is happily in bloom right now -
so that seemed like the perfect spot for one more photo!
I haven't decided where to hang this inside yet, but I know I'm going to enjoy it!
