For as far back as I can remember, I have always loved autumn leaves, especially the fiery colors of red, orange, yellow and gold. So it's not surprising that they have made their way into my artwork over the years. When I began learning various surface design techniques, they surfaced, both in my wearable arts but also in the art and landscape quilts I began making.
Below are photos of a few examples, along with descriptions of how I created the pieces. You may notice that the leaf shapes look similar in the different pieces, and that is because I use a set of leaf stencils to draw the leaves... purchased years ago at a craft supply show.
