the leaf quilt

I’m calling this donation quilt the leaf quilt, because a) the pattern is stylized leaves, and b) the colored fabrics all have leaves of one kind or another in them.  I hadn’t realized how many leaf fabrics I’d collected over the years till I went looking to see if I had enough to make this quilt.

36″ x 54″, hand quilted in a simple crosshatch.  And yes, some of the blocks are turned a quarter randomly on purpose, to imitate falling leaves.

That’s the eighth donation quilt I’ve finished this year.  Three already given away, five so far in a stack waiting for the next quilt show that takes them (in March).
