Work in Progress Wednesday

Another quilt finished feels really good.  A very large leaf was printed in multiple colors to create this one.  I like that the leaf is heart shaped.  I hand embroidered and hand quilted it.  I got this quilt done just in time to show it to a senior's group yesterday.  I was teaching them how to do some nature printing on paper but they loved that it could be done on fabric as well. I am linking with edited to explain I paint a thin coat of fabric paint onto the back of the leaf.  Then press the leaf onto the fabric.  It is a simple process but a bit tricky to get the right amount of paint on the leaf.  It is always good to practice a bit first.
