Amy at Amy's Creative Side is hosting the Bloggers' Quilt Festival. And I've got something new! I made this quilt as a gift for my brother-in-law, PJ, and his wife Danielle.

So, here they are: a set of three nested fabric buckets to mix-and-match at will. I’m even thinking the littlest size would make a sweet handbag for the spring, don’t you?

When you get all your leaves cut out, tear the backing appliqué paper off the leaves and trunk. Then you can arrange them how you want on your pillow front.
