Stitch Talk #6 Leaves and Teardrops

Today features two related filler designs from the Blue Heart quilt, Leaves and Teardrops.

Leaves










 
Teardrops


These two fills are virtually the same, it's just that Leaves come to a point.
For leaves, stitch a leaf shape, then echo it, either inside or outside.

Continue adding leaves, stitching over previous stitching if necessary to get to a place that needs filling.


Teardrops are made the same way, just without the pointy end.


Remember, backtracking helps to get where the design needs to go.  I hope you'll give this a try!
 
Happy Quilting!
