Free Motion Hawthorn Leaves


This panel might look slightly familiar.  I have used exactly the same fabrics as for the tea cosy, but this time the quilted panel is big enough to make two large cosies.  Last time I thought the leaves looked slightly like hawthorn leaves.


This time I did my best to make them look more realistic, with the irregular outline.


Having been on the receiving end of a hawthorn's thorns in the past, I couldn't add in these thorns without memories flooding back of how they feel when they get you under the thumbnail.


At the moment the hawthorns are practically bare of leaves, but have a rich crop of dark red berries, so I have added in a little cluster of berries here and there.
