are such versatile things... especially if you make them on Evolon. I made a cutting of a fern frond; this is it with stitch;
Finally, there is this one;
Just for a change, I used stem stitch for the central vein of the leaf. It's interesting to see what a strong contrast it makes with the long stitches delineating the edges of the leaf, and the small stitches creating the background. On reflection, I think a back stitch might have been better for the delineation task...but it's fine as it is, I think.
All three pieces have been stitched on cotton wadding. I think, myself, they're closer to embroideries than to quilts, but technically, I suppose they qualify...what do you think?
