Blogger's quilt festival - Improv leaves

AmysCreativeSide.com
 
 
Blogger's Quilt Festival time!!! Love this Festival and so grateful for Amy @ AmysCreativeSide.com HERE for hosting it. This year I decided to go for it. I know my photos are not great but I so loved doing this project. This is a leaf diptych I made for a Christmas present for one of my sisters.  Please excuse the salmon colored wall behind! :(
 

I am going to enter this in the Art Quilt category HERE. I hope it is allowed to enter them together since they are meant to be together. Each part measures approx. 17"x 20".  Batik fabric used for all the components of the leaves. FMQing throughout on home machine. The entire project was seamed together (no applique) as free form improv piecing. I really don't like that salmon wall back there! Facing turned backing.

 
Up close quilting
 
 
I wish I would have taken better photos or I wish I knew how to use my new desktop to edit the photos but alas.... I am just going for it!

Please check out the Festival and see all the amazing quilts.
