Falling Leaves

This 27 x 27 inch wall-hanging quilt was designed by Nancy using the wide variety of leaves that fall in our yard during the Autumn season each year. Colors were chosen to represent those of the actual leaves. The leaf patterns were traced onto paper and the material was cut using those patterns. The leaves are appliqued in this overlapping manner to represent the randomness of falling leaves. Note how quilting is used to bring out the various vein patterns on the leaves.
