2012 FMQ challenge - bonus tutorial August

I didn't complete the March tutorial as it had been removed by the time I started the challenge in May.  For my twelfth challenge, I decided to complete the bonus tutorial by Susan Brubaker Knapp, which involved using an image from your environment as a quilting design.

While we were in Amsterdam, I snapped this photo of a leaf on some paving outside the Van Gogh museum, with the plan to use it for the challenge.

This is my quilted version.

Thank you Susan, this was an eye opener for potential quilting motifs.


  1. I love how you did this one.

  2. That is cool... and Congratulations on catching up! You did it!

  3. I love this! One of my new year's resolutions is to take my camera more places so I can use Susan's method. My daughter is a beader and wants to collaborate on a piece this year. I'm no artist, but think this method is the answer to finding something "arty" without brain pain! Thanks for sharing.
