which I am now humbly entering in this year's Blogger's Quilt Festival :: ROYGBIV category.
There's something rather dreamy about this leaf, if you ask me. ;o) Of course it doesn't hurt that it's pieced entirely of liberty of london tana lawn "scraps" (a favorite substrate in this house) paired with some of my favorite (let's be honest—they're basically all my favorite) low volume fabrics.
But it also holds a special place in my heart because it was the first thing I got to sew (Succulent Path aside) after a summer filled with morning sickness and a fall full of work (because how else would I replenish my liberty stash? ;P)
In fact, I'm so smitten, lately I've been thinking a bed-sized version is in order for our bohemian-rustic-chic master (the photo above was taken on our macrame curtains, and the one below on our brick bedroom floor).
And now that my mind is made up, the only question is... just how big should that big leaf be? As some of you may recall, this one turned out to be 20" square, and the final pattern (the #auctionforeleni version, pictured below) finishes at 17".
While I'm mulling that over, I hope you'll take a look at all the other beautiful entries, and thank you so much for stopping by!
P.S. This mini design is available on my new "patterns, etc." page if anyone's interested! And I've included alternate "centers" (in place of the tiny sundial) in case teeny tiny curved piecing isn't exactly your thing ;o)
