A mini quilt featuring a brilliant orange red oak leaf with purple contrast to celebrate the coming of autumn.
The oak leaf is stitched to the hand dyed background with a bronze metallic thread. The veins of the leaf are also stitched with the same bronze thread. The back ground is quilted in an echo design around the leaf. Colors of this piece are orange, bronze, olive green, and purple. The borders are cut in slightly curving lines and quilted to echo the lines of piecing.
Cotton, silk, and painted non wovens.
Mounted on black painted stretched canvas and ready to hang.
