Good Morning, Quilters!
Today we are going to review one of the earliest motifs offered here at The Inbox Jaunt–it is a “fan favorite”–The Open leaf with Spiral.
Last week we looked at Four Secrets to Better Spirals HERE
This week we use that Spiral in a leaf motif–gorgeous!
Begin by drawing three parallel lines. Begin stitching on the center line.
Stitch along the center line a few stitches, then sweep to the right drawn line. Stitch along the right drawn line for several stitches.
Stitch down toward the center line and curl into the center. Echo stitch the curl back to the center line.
Alternate right and left leaves to complete the design.Be sure to use careful stitching technique to keep the spacing between the leaves even.
What’s growing in your garden? Any pretty vines?
We’d LOVE to hear!
