    3 small quilts made a few months ago

    I know these are a little late but they were done in time to be hung for each of their special days. I have had some problems with my back and just don't get on the computer much now. The first one is for Valentine's Day and I really like it. Made partially with the serger and finished with my regular sewing machine. The next one, St. Patty's wall hanging is all made on the serger except for the binding.

    In one of my quilt groups we all made a Ricky Timms Convergence quilt and this is the one I chose. It represents a sunny day in the fall with the leaves falling from top right to lower left. I named this one Autumn Breeze.

    I hope you enjoy looking.

    My favorite is the last one. I like the way you made the shadows under the leaves.

    Your wall hangings are beautiful! I love the shadows you put on the leaves in your Autumn one.

    Question, why does it look like your leaves are floating or 3 dimensional?

    They are called shadows and made by cutting a black fabric with the leaf fabric then staggered them so they look like a shadow. I placed them on their sides and across the quilt so it would like a breeze just blew them off a tree. I used monofiliment thread and appliqued them down Hope this helps.

    I love the shadowing on your leaves! All are great. I am curious--on the 3-d pinwheels, are those finished blocks you have then worked into the quilt???? Wasn't quite sure how you got them to be 2 colors. Really like the effect.
    God Bless,
    Rachel
