Rainbow Leaves Quilt in Show

My rainbow leaves quilt was in the GHQG quilt show last weekend. Fall is my favorite time of year and this was a perfect theme to design a quilt for my antique four-poster bed. I chose a rainbow of colors in my favorite fabrics from stash. This is an original paper pieced design that was laid out in Adobe Illustrator. It was machine pieced and machine quilted by yours truly. It is a bit like wrestling an alligator to machine quilt a bed size quilt on a Bernina 1090 with a standard size opening but I rolled and tugged and pushed and pulled and did it in stages. The background area is quilted in loose puzzle piece shapes so that the leaves pop out and the strip pieced border has freeform leaves quilted into it.
