6 - Winner

Dana Kuhnline


First, while my fabrics aren't organic, they are used sheets and reclaimed vintage fabrics, and thus earth friendly. I planned out this quilt in early spring, when I was so hungry for those first yellow leaves of forsythia. We had a snow in April, so the idea of yellow leaves on a field of white is not too far-fetched.

I machine-quilted echo after echo around the fuse-applique raw-edged leaves and was pleased to see the ripples spread out like the rings around a raindrop in a puddle. Overall, this quilt has so many of my favorite spring features in it! It also has 4 spools of yellow thread!
