|Leaves are quilted with their appropriate vein patterns. Maybe another photo to capture the threads better.|
My customer made this for her son. You can tell there's a lot of thought and creative planning and love that's gone into the design and piecing and needle turn applique.
Along with the botanical theme, she asked for Red Hill Salamanders.
And also some Gopher Turtles. I looked up photos of the turtles and decided for quilting, a top down view of the carapace was best.

Here are some ferns with a few curly tendrils (Jamie Wallen - style). There are top and bottom borders which will be filled with more of these ferns after I turn the quilt.
It's at the half-way point, but I wanted to share how it's going so far. I think the second half will go much faster than the first. I really hope she'll like the finished quilt.
Enjoy your day!
