It was fun setting the blocks every which way
I sewed the leaf blocks and plain blocks together into giant 9-patch and 4-patches. Some blocks needed to be sashed because they were made smaller. It was a bit like sewing a puzzle together .
I love that little one in the middle : )
My plan was to have the leaves appear to be floating down from one corner to the other. I think the wide border helped them appear more 'airy'
The fact that hubby and my daughter were both home early Monday morning resulted in a photo shoot!
They each earned an ice cap.
Happy happy Wednesday!
