This is my current sewing-on-the subway project.
Yes. It's "out of season", but it's my most transportable project and I am glad to be making a little progress on it.
In honor of Molly's question of Inspiration - Imitation - Innovation, here's a little background. The quilt that inspired this was all maple leaf blocks, with very large and orderly rows of leaves filling the center of a scrappy quilt. When I started sewing mine years ago, I wanted it to be just like that! But when I got it back out this year, I decided I want something more free-form, with a variety of wind-blown leaves tossed over the background fabric.
So...I'm adding applique and embroidery and words. What words, especially action words, do you think of when you think of falling leaves? I have twirl and float and fall...What else? Maybe crunch or dance? Can you even think of autumn things when you are dreaming of spring???
