I found out yesterday that this quilt is a finalist in the New Quilts from an Old Favorite contest at the National Quilt Museum....my quilt will hang there! I can't wait. I'm so excited! Let's now talk about it's making some more. Here's where I left you. I had a gradation of oak leaf blocks. Now to find the perfect fabric for the large block.
Here were what I had a large enough piece of....orange? NO.
Love this, but no.
This fabric was the original intention....NOPE.
What did I end up with? A light pink batik that worked perfectly. I drafted an oak leaf and started filling it with feathers and swirls. I again used leather, taffeta, satin, and velvet. It was a blast to see it come to life.
I wish you could see the different textures, but it's hard in a photograph.
I am so excited to see it hang in the National Quilt Museum!!!!!!
I hope you get to quilt today and have a fantastic Thanksgiving!
