I did get a finish for October while I was on vacation. And here it is. I call it "The Pillow of a Thousand Leaves":
And here it is flat without the pillow form:
Here's what I started with. This is wool pieces hand appliqued on a coarse silk background. The pattern is from Little Pieces by Joan. I did a pumpkin pillow of hers earlier.
And this is what I wanted to finish in October, but it's only half quilted. More pictures coming.
And this is one photo from our vacation. That's a separate post too. It's not a bad picture considering I couldn't stop laughing.
