So far so good with this quilt.
I left it to one side to "brew", while I worked on "WHY?"
A month or so ago I made some silk paper just to see what it was like. I discovered I love the process of making the paper and the end result.
When Lisa Walton sent me some of her really cute precut and backed leaves, I knew exactly what I would do with them. Use them on this quilt. I ironed them on (don't use a just warm iron!!!!!! Don't ask!). The quilt still needed something -" leaves cut from the silk paper!", I thought to myself. So, at 11.30 last night, I sew the silk leaves on. I still have to stitch the fabric leaves! I'm starting to feel very positive about this quilt.
I blocked "WHY?" over the weekend and now the quilt is square again! I'd read about what happens when you use a bias seam but I'd never seen it before - not pretty!
