Stitched and Quilted Leaf Print

25th April 2014


Had my daily stitching fix!

I backed the leaf printed fabric with fine wadding and medium vilene. Using variegated thread I free machined around the leaf parts and zigzagged the centre vein.....




..then using my quilting foot stitched around the leaf in a paler variegated thread.

This idea might be used to make placemats.

I used my tree block to print on thick white paper then mounted this on black card to make a card.....


....quite like it. 

Might make some more in different colours to raise funds for the park.
