Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Design Wall Monday: Leaves


My mother had a lot of gathered projects or ones with cut pieces and a block or two finished, but I didn’t I didn’t bring any of them home.  I did bring this top of six inch maple leaf blocks (48″ x  60″).  I’m auditioning these fabrics for borders.  I may use them both.  I love the colors in the print, but it’s tropical, which won’t show if I use it for a narrow inner border.  The hand-dye print from Kona Bay is neither burgundy nor rust, which is why it’s still in my stash, but it’s perfect for this.

I’ll finish this up for donation, and I know my mom would like that.

I’m linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.
