I like to piece as well as fuse. And I particularly like to piece leaves this way.
This table runner is pieced. It is called Aspen Leaves and was in the book Skinny Quilts II
It was inspired by this quilt called “It’s Good to Be Green” which was in an exhibit by the same name.
Here is a nice close up of the quilting.
You can see by these illustrations some of how it is made.
To start I made a pattern out of freezer paper.
And then used the freezer paper and some glue to help in the piecing process.
It is fun and yet still free form way to work. You can get all the directions from my pattern Aspen Leaves.
Here are a few other examples of pieced leaves.
Shimmering Foliage is a really large quilt and one of my favorites. It measures 82” square. I love this piece.
Wood Light 54” x 54”. All those leaves were made with the left overs from piecing the big leaves for Shimmering Foliage.
Have a great weekend and look at a few leaves while you are thinking about it.
