October - Canopy

My 10x6" quilt is meant to depict the rain forest canopy, and that flash of crimson represents all the exotic species to be found up there.  The leaves were cut from my collection of leaf fabrics and are not fused, only glued enough to hold them in place for the stitching.  I thought the frayed edges might make them look wilder...or something.
