Little Leaves Quilt finish!

It's been a long time coming but I finally finished the Little Leaves quilt I've been working on for my sister Jen.

This one started out as a birthday quilt for her birthday in October, then because a Christmas quilt, and now in May it's finally done and can be shipped to her in Hawaii.  The hand quilting is what took forever.  Stitching around 384 leaves in pearle cotton takes longer than you would think, but it makes a beautiful effect.

Enjoy the pictures!
