Finally! I finished the leaf quilt from the 2011 Leavenworth retreat. I had the top put together at the retreat but it took me this long to layer and quilt it. My 21 year old granddaughter has dibs on it. She loves grandpa's artwork and when she saw the blocks with his drawings that I had stitched, she claimed it was hers for sure. First it will go to the Oregon retreat for show and tell as promised to Candis. I didn't realize how much I would enjoy quilting this. I read all the names on the blocks as I quilted and remembered the people I spent such a great time with and met for the first time.

And a close up of a few of the blocks. Pretty please ignore the quilting. I just did an all over meander.

Barbara from California:

I love your quilt Judy!!  What is the name of the pattern?

 

Thank you Barbara. There is no pattern except I designed the layout of the blocks. The leaf blocks were all made by the quilters at the retreat. The embroidered blocks were my husbands sketches that I transferred onto plain blocks and then thread painted the designs by free motion stitching.

I set the leaf blocks wacky and filled in with sashing blocks.

Thanks Bonita and Donna.

Donna, sorry you didn't find some small hand project to work on. You are going to be having major withdrawals.
