"Leafing Out"

Marcia Wachuta

Boscobel, Wisconsin

 

I decided to challenge myself by leafing out and using the color GREEN! --- Not Blue!

 

This week's challenge was to be inspired by Annie Young and her beautiful art work. It is very obvious that she loves what she does.

 

My creation for this week needed to be something I love to do:

 

I love to make "free form" quilts.

 

I love to work with blue fabrics, but I decided to work with a color that challenges me - greens. I do not like the color green and I have a hard time matching greens.

 

I quilted my table runner with small meandering with leaves and swirls. I call it "Meandering with a Twist". It is my most favorite quilting. It looks traditional, yet has a modern twist with the addition of the leaves.

 

I shared the construction of the quilt top on my blog. marciascraftysewing.blogspot.com/2013/02/leafing-out.html

 

Thanks Kim for another wonderful quilt challenge!
