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.
