I spent most of yesterday preparing for my church craft group that meets at my house. But I did find a little bit of time to play.

I think I need to prepare and cut more leaf shapes!

Have a great day!

About katyquilts

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

  1. I love where your idea is going. Are the edges turned under on your leaves?

    Thanks for the idea. My mom had a crazy quilt pillow out of some old ties that was kind of neat. I saved quite a few of my husbands ties when he retired wanting to used them in some way. I like yours so much better and I love to do applique.

    Hi Katy. Love your projects using ties. I have mine washed but have not taken them apart. What am I waiting for???? I would like to pick your creativity, our church Fall Festival is coming up and I’m chairing our Country Store. We have place mats , pot holders(including micro-wave pot holders)and a few small quilts. Do you have any other suggestions that might work?

    Cute idea! I like the ones where you have lots of leaves close together.

  13. Terri says:
