This book cover is made using left overs from a quilt I made many years ago.
I had ruched some thin fabric, dyed it using a palette of various blues, then cut out and appliqued leaves to a pale blue background.
This leaf is a little too far of to the left, but I didn't have enough fabric to rectify that.
To echo the ruching, I used a straight simple FMQ motif of parallel (ish) lines, but curved the columns to wrap around the leaf. I love the way this opens and closes the lines like a concertina.
