Turning Leaves

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!

The back is nearly as nice as the front, what a beautiful, cheery quilt and from your description it fits exactly the recipient. Congratulations. I am looking forward to seeing the picture she sent you. Take care.

I've been visiting your blog for several weeks now and really enjoy your posts. You have many beautiful quilts, including this one. Is Turning Leaves your name for this pattern or an "official" name. It is lovely, and quite appropriate for your niece. I'll be looking for tomorrow's photo!

A wonderful quilt, and I love your hand quilting! It will be fun to see her own photo of it...

I am always in awe of your quilts...especially the density of hand quilting you choose to do. I feel the same...the more quilting on it, the more of a quilt it becomes! Beautiful.
