Design Concept

In the neighborhood near my former home in aducah KY there are Bradford Pear trees which produce autumn leaves in an amazing variety of different colors and patterns. For several years I picked up especially beautiful specimens and scanned or photographed them. This quilt was inspired some of the characteristic patterns in these beautiful leaves. It is not meant to be a picture of a leaf, but simply a play on some of the design elements of the leaves.

All of the fabrics in the center of the quilt were hand painted and dyed. The outside border fabrics are from my Caryl’s Feather collection, which I designed for Benartex.
The quilting is done with many different colors of polyester top-stitching thread. The appliqued spots in the center of each leaf section are quilted in the color of the background, to make the pebbly pattern look like it is floating.
