I finished the Charming Stars quilt made from a Kate Spain Terrain layer cake, and have christened it “Leaf Me Alone” in the spirit of the spa quilt (and in honor of those leaf shapes I quilted in the some of the star centers). The “spa quilt” idea is such that when you are wrapped up in this quilt, everyone should leave you alone because you are having a mini-spa moment to yourself. You can’t abuse the privilege however, or no one will take the spa quilt idea seriously. Girl who cried quilt, and all that.
Here’s a close-up on one of the leaves before all the other quilting – I did a chrysanthemum, this leaf, a daisy, and a squiggle (like in the green square in the lower left below):
Here’s a section of those four designs – click to go to flickr to embiggen.
The backing fabric I found at JoAnn’s and sucked it up and got it there because it was the perfect shade of aqua green. Since it was JoAnn’s fabric, I pre-washed the back but not the front (since it was a layer cake) or batting. It still turned up nice and crinkly.
And now time to conquer another project in the sewing room!
