Leaf Quilting

This is the first quilt done on the front of the machine. I started out using a template for the flowers and the leaves. Then realized I could freehand the leaves and look just as good. I was really hoping the flowers (which are quilted on the purple flower print) would show up more, but it is the leaves that really stand out. Good for fall!

Chenille Quilt

This was so easy to make! I wish I had chose different colors for the chenille now, but that's how we learn! The green wasn't dark enough and red would have been a great choice.

This quilt has 5 layers of flannel, the bottom 4 are cut into strips after sewing the lines. A chenille cutter is a must. It is so soft and warm!
