Stars & Leaves was #19 on my 2018 list and it is now done :)
I like to have a quilting project to work on after dinner and this was my most recent one. It's 24" x 24".
I found a lot of inspiration in Ann Hermes' book Pennsylvania Patchwork Pillowcases and Other Small Treasures (Schiffer Publishing, 2014).
I liked the shape of this leaf (from an unfinished project) and used it again in the blocks that I started appliqueing last year.
It's a simple design. The blocks are 6" and the hsts are 2".
I like quilting stars diagonally in each direction followed by two sets of chevrons 3/4" apart in each segment.
I quilted around each leaf and again 1/4" inside followed by diagonal straight lines in the background. I like the texture. The 1/2" binding is a solid red.
The back and a detail :)
Hope you're having a wonderful week!
