This quilt was made a few years ago and given to another niece. She is a forestry engineer and loves the outdoors and what better pattern for her than a quilt of leaves.
In her other life, she is a professional photographer and her subject is nature.
Upon giving her this quilt, it was requested that she provide a photo of the quilt with her in it and the setting would be of her choice.
I wondered what she would choose. Living in the interior of British Columbia, would she choose a scene with a majestic waterfall; or on top of a mountain; or beside a raging river; or what? What would she choose? Next post, you’ll find out.
Here is a photo of back showing all the hand-quilting. Sometimes, when the design on the front is so busy, you have to look at the back to see the quilting.
Have a great day!
