    I LOVE this! I think I might want to do this even. I just blogged about my hand appliqued baby quilt in honor of your quilt month. Applique is very rewarding. Mine’s in hearts, but this fresh leaf design is awesome.

    This is a one-of-a-kind. I love the design and the obvious amount of love and dedication it took to carry it out.

  24. Cassie Ogle says:

    So pretty! I love the bold yellow background 😀

  25. Stacey Crease says:

    This retrospective was wonderful to read and view. I think all quilts have stories and the retrospective shared numerous stories with us. I think it is so cool that the Dresden Plate quilt is quilted with Mason jar-sized circles. I enjoy canning in the summer time and think that connects well with the quilt having a plate motif. Food related, you know? The leaf baby quilt is delightful!

    Love that fun, bright yellow!
