Swirling Leaves is a celebration of one of natureâ€™s glorious seasons â€“ the autumn. The intuitive process in creating this was a new learning experience for me. The large pieced leaf for the background, bars, appliquÃ©d leaves, netting, wind ribbon bands, couched ribbon, more leaves, glue and foil, and beads, each a separate layer, comprise the creation of the quilt top. Machine work; cotton, polyester, silk, netting and satins.
