Focus on Fusing - Lesson 2

What fun doing Melody's Focus on Fusing lesson this week!!  Melody  has included leaves in quite a few of her quilts and this weeks lesson was on making leaves!!  Woohoo!!!

We got to practise making leaf shapes, which was great!!  Here are a few of mine!

They look really nice on background fabric...the shadows are from the binder page glare!

We are keeping our samples in a binder, which is a good idea.  I'm sure some of us will create a quilt piece using several of these samples.  But it's also nice to have the examples just for inspiration!

I am really having fun with this 'fusing' thing!  I'm trying not to start making a quilt or art work yet....there's just so much Melody can show/teach us...hard to contain yourself but, let's face it, I do have other projects to work on don't I!!

Well, maybe I could just think about something small to work on!  Bob wants me to make a new table runner for the dining room....hmmmmmmmmmm

Robbie…..I LOVE your color combo…..a refreshing change from the bright and bold often associated with this style.

Hmmm a table runner would be quick and easy and just the right size to create from your leaves fusing lessons. Pretty smart Hubby.
