What materials did you use? paper piecing quilt fabrics -- I make every leaf in a different fabric so no two are the same. If I loved a swirl or pattern that was tone on tone in a fabric I bought other colors of it for this quilt.

What are you most proud of? Finishing it. I made one sixteenth of this quilt 10 years ago and put it away. To complete this quilt I did one row every night till it was finish. It took 3 months. It is like putting together a puzzle because you are matching your chosen colors above and below as you are making leaves. You also need lots of backgrounds and blue for the water running through it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do an entire line of work every day till you are finished. Packs of fabric in 1/8 are sold at Keepsake quilting to get you started. I took photos in the Fall in NYC to get the colors just right. Amazingly orange, purple, deep red and lime green were in those fall colors.
