A Leaf Quilt on the Frame

I put my leaf quilt in the frame.  I saw a picture of this quilt in a catalog so I designed one like it for a queen sized bed.  It was a little tricky to get the leaves to look random. I cut each leaf out of graph paper and then glued them onto another sheet of graph paper.

I chose an overall quilting pattern. It is continuous, designed for machine stitching, but I am doing it by hand,  I am not that good on the machine especially with a queen sized quilt.

I had planned on making this quilt for Bill and Rejina because I thought it would go well in their bedroom.  After I got the top done I liked it so much I thought about keeping it for myself. I have changed my mind and decided to give it to them after all.

I really like how it came out. I'm suprised it's so different from the other leaf quilt -- the white seems to really change it.
