Magnolia leaves??? Maybe I'm officially cuckoo....but, I saw this idea somewhere. Wish I remembered where. I just kept shoving leaves under my presser foot and minutes later I had a lovely live garland!
The mantel looks oh-so-much-better now, I do believe. Since our TV is mounted over the fireplace, there is only so much mantel decorating we can do. I think this well become a yearly thing. And it only took about 5-10 minutes.
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
