Weekend Work

9 Leaves
15x19"
Cotton, fused, hand and machine quilted and embroidered

Detail
I will be teaching Leaf Collections in Janesville WI this week, and it's always nice to have a new version to bring along.
Then I decided it was time to repair the weaknesses in Stardust. I removed the too-light stars.

Pile of ripped off stars

They were removed from this neighborhood on Stardust. The contrast was too low, and it was right in the middle of the quilt, so it looked vacant.

The before view.
...vacant and wanting more oomph.

The new and improved center with darker stars. I left a few lighter ones on the one orb, since it was fading nicely off the left edge.



The completed Stardust. I think it will hang horizontally. Click for a larger image.

  8. I love them both. The drama of that long bare stem with the nine leaves at the top is so wonderful.

    I am so impressed with the stardust quilt/wallhanging. How did you attach all the pieces, by machine or hand? I am told I do excessive amount of quilting/hand work and this looks like something I would love to try.
    Sheri for Saskatchewan,Canada
    ps. winters are long and I like to hibernate after work and sew.

  15. I read your blog almost every day because you make such beautiful quilts. I love the color combinations you use. Your cross series is one of my favorites and now "9 Leaves" is another one. As a matter of fact, if you look closely it forms a cross as well. :)
