I am looking for a site where I can find some ivy, or leaves to stitch onto a quilt that has pumpkins in the fabric. The one that I sent a picture of recently with the subject line "Before and After". I want to put stitched pumpkins on it also, so I am hoping I can find leaves that are on the small side.

Has anyone found a site like this?
Thanks,
Anne

You might try looking up "free redwork patterns". Something may come up.

Thanks Kathyd.

btw...Are you a member of a minuteman group? Your avatar looks like the outfits I used to wear when Jim and I lived in Massachusetts. We were in the Rehoboth Minutemen.

No. We do do period re-enactments in the St. Louis area. This picture was taken at an event for the Lewis and Clark Expedition Anniversary. Vernon does period eagle carvings (vldwoodcarver.com) and I bring along my hand piecing to keep him company and to keep my hands busy. We've been doing this for close to 15 years now. Lots of fun and sometimes lots of work. I have lots of piece tops - that's the part I like best. I figure my daughters can do something with them when I'm gone.
