The pattern is called "Turning Leaves." It was originally published by Quiltmaker magazine in the September/October 2002 issue. The pattern is still available here. I eliminated their pieced border, making mine a smaller version. The finished size is 43.5" x 60".
I made the quilt top in 2003 and taught it as a class a couple of times that year. Then it got packed away with all my other quilt tops and UFOs while I was on the road for seven years. I had it quilted last month by my good friend Jan of Cat's Meow Quilting in Brookfield, WI.
Here is a close-up to give you a better look at Jan's beautiful quilting. All the fabrics in the top are batiks.
I am so happy to have this quilt finished, and we have the perfect spot to display it.
It's time for me to link up to Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday. There is an incredible variety of ideas and inspiration there to enjoy, which is the reason why Monday has become one of my favorite days of the week!
