I snuck into the neighbour's front yard to take advantage of all the fresh maple leaves on the ground for this photo shoot. As you can see the leaves were raining down as I took the pictures.
I decided on diagonal lines in the colored portions, and simple curls in the border and sashing strips.
A double whimsical feather follows the shape of the piecing and gives some movement to the white areas.
I always like to know what the back looks like too.
I don't always remember to take a before shot, but it is nice to look back and see how much quilting changes the look.
