January FMQ Challenge

When I first saw this design, I thought to myself, "When will I EVER use leaves with stems!? That just doesn't seem like something I will use in my quilting." At the end of the video though, Frances Moore shows a tree with the leaf motif quilted into it. The light bulb went on! So, after some practicing on a quilt sandwich...

I took the plunge and quilted my lovely pillow! And I couldn't be happier. I can't think of a better FMQ motif than this for this particular pillow. So, thank you Sew Cal Gal and Frances Moore-what a fantastic first tutorial!
