On Wednesday I took a Lazy Leaves workshop making a pattern taught by Joy-Lily. Such a fun day and I learned lots.
We started out cutting strips from 1 inch up to 2.25 inches. I was surprised at the other students and the many different fabrics they brought and how they all worked in this project.
With my fabric choices I made a strip set that was 9 inches by 18 inches. I then cut my strip into two 9 by 9 inch squares. I took the two squares and laid them front sides together and cut them diagonally. I ended up with four triangles and when you put them together you get two of these, which will become two leaves.
Here is my first leaf done. The leaves were curved sewn into the background and each side attached with the stem down the middle. The size of the larger ones ends up being 12.5 inches square.
Once I got home I decided to try the smaller pattern that ends up being 6.5 inches. I plan to finish off four smaller ones and the two larger ones and put them together into a table runner. Perfect for a fall decorating scheme.
And only one more large leaf to go to finish the top of my runner.
