Eucalyptus completely machine quilted and about 1/2 way bound.
A closeup of eucalyptus. I'm "test applying" a bunch of these leaves. They are loosely attached to the quilt to hang free. If I like the look, and if they do not tangle on themselves too much, I will attach about 200 of them to make a limb overhanging the quilt. If it doesn't work, I'll have to decide if I want to applique them partly down. Or leave the piece just as it is. I want this piece to be entered in a couple shows... so what do you think?
