One Thing Leads to Another

I have finished appliqueing the colored wool leaves onto my Kim Diehl quilt - now it's layered and pin basted and waiting to be machine quilted. 


I had a few of the wool leaves leftover and started playing with them - found out that they make a nice design all by themselves. So I cut out a few more and started stitching them down onto another piece of wool - this will make a small table topper eventally.




Just finished this book about four sisters of a certain age - enjoyed it!

Mmmm, I love that Kim Deihl Quilt and also that little Orange Peel you've started. That's how I began In The Orange Grove, with the simple Orange Peel set up. So simple.

A bonus design that is going to turn into something unique. Play time is turning into something good.

Great leftovers quilt! Sometimes they're more fun than the original, although your original is pretty sweet.:)
