This quilt came from a pattern from Sew Fresh Quilts.  I pieced the bottom of the quilt using leftover leaf fabric instead of the plain green strip called for in the pattern. Although the instructions were clear, it still took me a long time to finish.

That's a really fun quilt! I love the bright colours and I think the pieced green area fits very well with the leaves. I think this looks better than a solid green area would have done. The backing is great too, perfect colours, perfect pattern.
