Here is my paper pieced leaf quilt. I did it for a challenge for a quilt club i was in, but then I moved away. I want to have it machined quilt with a leaf pattern. But who knows when that will happen. Ok on with the quilt:

I love the border fabric on this!!

Any comments are great!!! I would love to be a hot topic  Wink Wink Grin

WOW! I am normally not a Fall color kinda gal, but this is STUNNING!  Very sophisticated and Dramatic!  Like jewels on fire Smiley  I don't know how else to say it.  I rocked it because it just really strikes me...the your color combinations are perfect, so much dimension

Gorgeous!  I love it.  Where did you find the pattern?  I know I've seen it somewhere and loved it then, too.

Thank you. I can't remember where I got it. But I found one really simular.  Here it is

The only difference is that it has a stem and the leaves aren't cut in half like mine. I would love to see yours if you make one!

The black background makes the leaves look really dramatic! Great job.

This is BEAUTIFUL!  I've never tried paper piecing, but I'd love to.  This quilt inspires me to try!
