Hosta is one of my favorite plants. It loves shade, every few years you can double your collection by dividing them, and the various shades of green in the leaves of the different varieties is endless. I thought Hosta leaves would be a perfect candidate for free-motion quilting to highlight their deep veins.
Here’s a closeup of the detail on a leaf of my hosta quilt which shows the free-motion quilted veins.
