Machine Embroidered Leaves

Jeanette's new mixed media textile work is based on Autumn Leaves and
is inspired by a community wallhanging picture she saw in a magazine.
She wants to learn many different ways of making leaves and
Next week is printing and painting the background
fabric to the work and designing more foliage.

Gallery Tuesday 24th May 2011

Sylvia is trimming the free machined quilted cot quilt for her
future Great Grand Child.
She began classes in January for the sole purpose
of making a quilt for her expected Great Grand Child then.
She made a beautiful animal quilt and it was given to her
new Great Grand Daughter.
The next month a large envelope arrived in the post
with lots of bits of yellow fabric and some animal squares,
with the plea from her other Grand Daughter who was
"Please can you finish this I don't know what to do!"
Sylvia laughed and we made sense of the odd
cut strips and patches already cut out and she put it
all together as you can see above.
I few bits of piecing had to go on for the back!
Sylvia loves Machine Quilting and it looks really great.
It's having red bias binding to finish it off.
A very lovely Great Grandma Gift!
