TEA LEAF FINISHED!

Finished at last!  Above is the tea leaf quilt that I made while attending Happy Scrappers at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I love how it turned out.
This is a close up so you can see how I quilted the inner borders and see the binding I chose.  I was going to use the same fabric for the binding that I had in the border.  However, Buffie planted a seed in my head when she suggested I use something else with maybe a flower in it.  I’m so glad she said that.
This shot shows you the quilt front and back.  I’m ready to start on another one of these quilts.  The Happy Scrappers meets this Saturday at the Attic Window and again next Wednesday.  Hope you will join us. 

ON ANOTHER NOTEThe Way I Sew It has a tutorial for a Four Lily Block.  This is part one so don’t forget to go back and get her next post with instructions too.

PS:  I'm linking up to Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  Check it out.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Love the Tea Leaf quilt. You came up with a beautiful border color - not too bold, but it says, "Look at me!" Your quilting is lovely too. A quilt to be proud of!

I love your binding, too! I love the interest it add with the little flowers! Your quilt turned out so great. I'm so impressed, Caroll! It's really fantastic and so different from Buffie's! I'm still cutting leaves. Haven't sewn a single block!
