Capturing spring

I have been finishing off a couple of UFOs and found this 12 block log cabin still pinned ready to quilt. It is pieced from many of the indigo and rust fabrics  of 2010 - and I have been shamed into action. I went for a walk through the vegetable garden and surrounds and picked 12 leaves - from coriander and parsley to grevillea shoots and callistemon leaf. The centre of each block has now been printed and imprinted with spring. It's also proved a great opportunity to practise stitch in the ditch which I can safely report, is most accurate after the first but well before the second glass of red is finished. Some reverse stitching in progress this morning.
