Oak Leaves in the summer
Summer continues and we have had hot, hot, HOT weather in our neck of the woods. Luckily a cool basement level makes sewing and quilting bearable. This afternoon I finished "Oak Leaves and Reel", a panel quilt by Terry Clothier Thompson for Moda. I have had this quilt panel and all of the accompanying fabrics for this quilt for at least 3 years. So, I decided it was time to make it up. I did echo quilting around all of the leaves and acorns in the borders as well as treating each panel block seperately. The quilt is ready for a binding and as soon as I finish that, I will move on to my brother-in-laws requested t-shirt quilt made out of his collection of Red Wings t-shirts.
