Susan McCord was a pretty amazing quilt designer! Janet Treen made a fantastic pattern! And I had hours and hours of fun appliqueing leaves to make this quilt. I'm a bit sad to be done but I know I will enjoy each leaf again when I handquilt this top.
It's a large top - difficult to photograph inside - so I waited for a nice day to take some outside shots. (quilt holder #2 is a cutie pie - DS really had to reach to hold it up off the ground :0)
I'm excited at all the possibilities for my next applique project. I know I want to start another big project. This top was 4 years in the making and that's just fine. I enjoy the process :0)
