This was my first official art quilt, although I had done a few hand sewn wall hangings before this.  I used a photo I took of leaves floating on a lake as my inspiration.  The base fabric and some of the fabrics used for the leaves were hand dyed.  All came from my stash.  I fused the leaves onto the background, then used free-motion stitching to add the leaf details.    Finished size is 19 3/4" by 28 1/4".
