A couple of years ago I took a class from Jill Howes to learn the technique she used to make a quilt she calls "Sonoma Leaves". It is a stunning quilt and the leaves have a raised effect. I decided to make my own version of this from leaves I collected at the North Umpqua River in Oregon. This is the center of the quilt. Next step will be putting on borders. I hope to get that done this weekend.
