Finally...Those Maple Leaves

I have one last quilt to show you from the wonderful trunk show offered by Barbara Polston.

Finally...Those Maple Leaves
A traditional pattern with a "twist".

I love Barbara's use of graduated color throughout the leaves and continuing on in the border.
I especially liked the vibrant purple leaves in the lower right hand corner, a very non-traditional fall color.

One of the most important qualities that sets one quilters apart from all the others is their eye for color.
Barbara has mastered this skill, and it's one of the reasons I am so attracted to her quilts.

If Barbara's quilt looks familiar, there may be a reason.
Finally...Those Maple Leaves has won many awards including being chosen for the 2008 Art Engagement calendar published by American Quilters Society.
