A Couple of Challenges

This is my January Journal for the online group ANZartquilters. the chosen theme was 'Seasons' and I chose to do Autumn.

I layered a sheer fabric over a blue print that had leaves on it then free motion stitched tree branches and then added some tiny leaves and stitched them down randomly travelling over the piece.

The leaves under the sheer fabric were then free motion stitched to quilt the background.

The 2nd piece is my interpretation of a postcard that a friend brought home from Tuscany.

I wanted to be abstract in my interpretation and not do a copy of the postcard. I picked some of the main colours and shapes from the postcard to work with and just had fun free motion quilting all the pieces.

Both are very nice pieces.
