While walking in the park near my house, I picked up a lot of dry fallen leaves. Tracing the designs of the leaves on the quilting paper, I then quilted with free motion stitching. When the leaves are still on the trees, I never noticed such a variety of beautiful designs of the leaves. Once I found them on the ground, I noticed their interesting designs. I cut flower petals of wild azalea in confetti and placed them under the tulle. It was a joy to add pink color in my quilt for the first time. It was a success. This piece has lots of trees that needed to be embroidered on the edge of the tree trunks for accent and texture.
