Gum leaf quilting
Yesterday I started quilting my cousin's quilt. The Habitat fabrics have an understated colour-scheme, and although the main print is dandelions, in small pieces they could also be gum blossoms. I hadn't noticed it, but Simon put that and the colours together have a bit of an Australian feel, and he suggested gum leaves in the quiting. I'd already decided that an allover would be best for this quilt, so doodled with pen and paper until I came up with this random combination of loops and gum leaves.
