Making Lotus Leaves
I am making the leaves for the Blue Lotus today. After dyeing my fabric and heat setting the dye I drew my design for the leaves on tracing paper so I could move it across the surface of the fabric to choose the color I wanted for each leaf. After sewing my leaves together I free motioned stitched the surface of each leaf. Now I will add them to the quilt sewing only on the vein lines to give the leaf dimension.
