A Small Preview

Here's a snap shot of my Fall Splendor quilt that I'll have listed in my shop by next weekend!

I am currently finishing the binding on it. When you bind lap and baby quilts by hand you soon forget the amount of time it takes to bind a queen size quilt!
This quilt was made with the fabric collection Oak Leaves and Reel by Moda. It was introduced last year but is one of my absolute favorite collections so I couldn't resist using it. The quilt pattern is called Strip Twist. I have never done a quilt like this before but really enjoyed putting it together. I enjoy quilts that have different looks, depending on how you view them. The back of this quilt is an absolutely gorgeous red fabric with oak leaves and acorns.
I'm especially partial to Oak trees. They are my favorite tree. I could just plant them all over our property and be delighted to have an Oak tree forest! Unfortunately they are one of the slowest growing trees so in planting a forest of them, it would take a good 25 years before any real results were seen. But ya know the old saying, the best things come to those who wait! :)

It is gorgeous!! I love the colors,the prints and the layout. You do beautiful work! My favorite tree is a Willow Oak, but they too take very long to grow.
