    Aww - I know that if I lived in Florida I would miss Autumn too much too.

    The fabric you asked about is made by Andover Fabrics and is part of their “Arabesque” line. My middle daughter picked it out for a quilt I am going to make for her. I bought it on eBay about a year ago. You are in luck too, because I did a search on eBay and there is one seller with some fabric from that line. I had used the stripe version for the leaf, but the all over paisley is perhaps even better. Here is a link to the fabric on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Andover-Fabr...item1c1dc4cc59
    I hope you can capture a little of that wonderful Autumn feeling and enjoy it there in Florida!

    I love your idea too! Do you have any photos of your sweatshirts you could post for us?

    Jeepers jgriinke…. If I had to sew 34 of them, I would either get very, very good at it or loose my head and rake them into a pile. :lol:

    Thank you so much Cindy! It means all the more coming from a you since you've been a hesitant poster lately. I'm happy to find another quilter with a corny sense of humor too. ;)

    Everyone: your compliments are so much appreciated! I'm very happy and encouraged that you all like this tutorial!

    Very pretty, great idea for mug rugs for gifts. I bet a large holly leaf would be nice for Christmas and add some red beads or buttons for berries. I like it.

    Nice job, thank you for sharing! Those leaves could be used for so many things too, not just mug rugs. ;) I love it. :)

    Sew cute and a wonderful tutorial. I'm sitting next to my computer, printer and sewing machine. Any guesses as to what I'll be doing in a few minutes?
