Just time for a quick visual tip….
Our New Leaf motif looks great when combined with any flower motif!
Here I combined it with The Crabapple Blossom machine quilting motif.
The densely quilted leaf contrasts well with more open motifs like flower and give them “POP”.
My first book, Free Motion Machine Quilting 1-2-3 contains an entire chapter of flower motifs and my second book, More Free Motion Machine Quilting 1-2-3 includes fan favorites like Easy Breezy Flowers (p. 72) and the Classic Marigold (p.80) that would combine with The New Leaf for a gorgeous background fill!
(Both books contain a variety of design and Skillbuilding techniques)
Hope YOUR day is filled with lovely flowers!
(and a little time to tip toe through them!)
