    Made this quilt for the local nursing home's fall festival. Made the mistake of using heat and bond - didn't notice until too late that it was ultra hold. When I machine appliqued, it gunked up my needle, broke threads. Thank goodness for threaders on machines.

    It is lovely. After a few washings, even the Ultra will soften up.

    Lovely. I like the idea of appliqueing (SP?) the leaves after the quilt is put together.

    Oh. I love that. I like how they are just random over the quilt. I love leaf quilts. I have made three. But they are different than yours. Great Job!
