i guess september really is the time for going back to school! i learned so much from this project:
i had to research applique techniques; experiment with something other than a straight stitch; and how to improvise with the fabric i have when i forget the importance of following directions
i am happy with the outcome. i didn't like the leaf pattern supplied in the book; so, i designed several different shapes on my own. i think it gives it more interest and makes me feel like the top is a bit more personal.
i am so inspired by the changing colors of this time of year. okay, i am inspired by any and all colors; but, when i found this pattern (and the perfect jelly roll of batiks from hoffman fabrics) just had to make this my little homage to all that is fall.
