Here is a close-up of a quilt I've been working on my my Quilt Guild's challenge show, which starts this Saturday.  The challenge is titled "It's Easy Being Green."  I made this quilt from recycled clothing (I bought at second-hand stores).  I chose all shades of green, and cut into different sizes/styles of leaves.  It is mounted on some leftover drapery fabric I had lying around, and the batting is some leftover flannel (2 pieces spliced together).  I call it "Re-Leaf."  I had fun making it, as I just laid the fabric leaves all over the background, then sewed them down.  After everything was sewn I threw it into the washer and dryer to make all the raw edges "flutter and ruffle."  And yes, there is a hole in the middle of the quilt!  A leaf-shaped hole.


  1. Mom! I love this quilt! I'm sorry I couldn't see it in person! Great job on the blogs, can't wait to keep reading them!

  2. Thanks, Serra and Harmony. It was a lot of fun to make.
