Layers of Leaves - A Finished Top

I finished the top for Layers of Leaves. Yay! Thank you so much for the feedback on my last progress post. I loved reading your comments and saw that a lot of you had the same thoughts and comments that I had been thinking of when looking at the different options.

I ended up going with option 5 ie. finishing it off with the same grey as the top grey.


I don't think there will be that much grey at the bottom when all is said and done, but I envision a lot of quilting on this piece, which will shrink it so I'm leaving a lot extra in for the time being.

It's also taken a bit of a departure from my inspiration photo and design so the name is 'leaving' a lot to be desired. Ha ha. I'll be trying to think of a new name. Any suggestions?

Started pulling some threads...liking it so far.


I'm also thinking that I'd like to add some hand stitching. Yes, you heard me. Hand stitching. Moi! Should be interesting ;)

Have a great weekend! It's snowing here...

  3. Ha, ha; that makes three! I also thought sunset on water! "Sunset ripple" to be precise, although, coming from the UK, that sounds like ice cream.

  8. I still see layers of leaves. it kind of reminds me of the way they drift down from side to side as they fall to the ground on a still day (i.e. no wind) The grey background definitely says November to me.
