Lori's Leaves

Lori has row 7 up on her blog.  The new block is a modernish leaf.  It was easy and quick and I made no mistakes.
I chose fall fabric colors for the leaves.
My stems are from an open weave looking quilt fabric.
I used some vintage fabrics for some of the leaves.  It was a fun weekend project.  

I hope everyone had a nice thanksgiving.  Now bring on the Christmas craziness.

with your background fabric colors, it looks as if the leaves are falling against blue sky and white clouds. i love it!

I'm in the market for some Christmas sanity. LOL! Life has been too crazy lately. I love this quilt-a-long that Lori is sharing but I just don't have time to add another project. One day, I'll get to it.........one day.......... :-)

So pretty. Love the vintage fabrics. It's so pretty and fall like and warm here today, it's hard to think of Christmas.

I like your leaves. I think the background fabric "makes" these blocks!
