Tree progress

Don't faint. Yes this is my 2nd post in as many days. Something must be wrong with me! Well I suppose I do have a bug - the quilting bug!

I have been happily needleturning leaves and grass in my spare moments last night and today, and now have the top of the mini tree quilt done. I even took photos of the progress, and had my quilt holder on hold ready to work!

Second layer of leavesThird layer of leaves and the leaves are finally done!
Grass glue-basted down
Isn't he a cutie?!!
All done and ready to quilt and bind. I hope you enjoyed a look into the process and order of the applique!

Wow, the three layers really make this pop. Thanks for sharing the step by step, really shows how finished it looks compared on one layer of leaves.

I don't think there is a cure for the quilting bug.
