I got an encouraging email telling me about a show at the Napa Valley Museum in Yountville. My first thought is that they would only want exceptional quilts from the local area. In fact, they were interested in my quilt and it was going to be perfect for their show of Quilts for All Seasons. Sweet! I mailed it off to meet the deadline of Dec. 10th.
The background was easy as I sewed strips of fabric together into a large panel. Then I took an 8 inch ruler and laid it every which way. Once I had a stack I sewed them together and ended up with an interesting palette for my leaves.
I am not a Batik person but these leaves were out of batiks because I was going to be laying them out, fuse them on and then do decorative stitching over the top and batiks...they just hold up better!
Wish I could go down and visit my quilt at the museum but haven't figured out how to stretch my life in 10 different directions! Do you have any hints???
