Among the Leaves So Green
This is a pattern for a quilted wall hanging that measures 29” by 21”.
This wall hanging provided me with a couple of surprises! First of all,
the fabric I chose for the ornament gave it a look I was not expecting.
Have you ever seen a glass object that had things painted on it – and when
you look down into the inside of the object, you can see the outline of the
painted objects on the opposite side? Well, that’s what this fabric ended
up looking like. And I didn’t even realize that it was going to look that
way, until the quilt was finished! Also, when I was stitching the raw edges
of the green “leaves,” I decided to use up all of the bits and pieces of
spools of green thread that I had in my thread box. I learned a lesson that
day! The ones that didn’t quite match the fabric were the ones that looked
the best, while the ones that matched just blended in and didn’t even show up!
Don’t be afraid to try something different! Some experiments can have very happy results!
