Turning Leaves

I had the pleasure of quilting this one for my guild.  The pattern is from Quiltmaker. It is called "Turning Leaves" you can find it here.  We are donating this quilt to our local Art Centre to assist in the fundraising campaign.  It is a beautiful heritage building, and needs $$ for improvements.

  I love the batik that was chosen for the outer border, but I knew nothing much would show up on it unless it was linear design.  The Curved Echo Border treatment seemed like just the right choice.

The sashing strips got a swirl and and oak leaf. The blocks were stitched in the ditch between the squares and around the leaves using Superior's Mompoly thread as there was such a variety of colors to contend with.  I stitched veins in all the leaves using a green So Fine thread to bring some continuity to them.

 I just love how the back looks as well.  The quilting shows up so well.

I love group projects like this one.  Many guild members made oak leaf blocks, Brenda pieced the top together, I got the fun job of quilting and now it is in Gloria's care for binding.  Many hands do make light work!
