And it came to me to use those pieced blocks with the image of those leaves to make a quilt.
I used all hand dyed fabrics, some purchased and some which I had dyed. The quilt is hand appliqued and hand quilted with a 'curlicue' design.
The branches in the central panel are knotted in places. I used bleach to remove color from the central leaves, and made dots with a Pigma permanent marker for shadowing.
Fall was always my favorite time of year. I loved the colors and the cool weather.
Now I am older, it makes me think of the coming winter, the cold, and the long sunless days until spring.
