Let’s quilt Block 2!

I used the following Aurifil 50wt cotton thread colors (matching the fabric colors) to quilt my leaf in Block 2:
• 5015 (Gold Yellow)
• 2135 (Yellow)
• 3920 (Golden Glow)

I used the same quilting strategy as I did in Block 1 and followed the seams of my block to accentuate the block. In addition to the video above, you can go back and check out my quilting Block 1 video in Week 6.
