[slideshow]I’ve been working for several days on a modern heirloom for my friend Pam. She has a wonderful story to tell about this quilt that includes a day of laughter and fun with her college-age daughter, picking up leaves that were blowing in the wind and taking them home to press. From that day came this original quilt design with the color gradation, tossed leaves and twining ribbon applique, made completely from her stash! So cleverly designed, and well made! We first talked about simple flowing quilting, but the longer I had it in my studio, the more I realized it could really handle some serious quilting. Here are the results! Only seeing it in person would be better!
Here’s to you, Pam
