March's Lovely Finish

The Oak Leaf quilt top been finished for a while, but I realized I never blogged about it before now.  I'm adding it to the list at the Lovely Finishes party.

Finished Oak Leaf Quilt Top

My goal was to make the additional blocks I needed and to decide on a setting.  I really liked the leaf blocks lined up like marching soldiers, so I went with a simple arrangement with sashing and borders in the same color as the background.  I am still thinking about quilting design (and thread color!) for this one--realistic oak leaves and acorns or something geometric with more triangles?

I've enjoyed seeing these as you've made them. Although I can see the ease of construction with the HSTs, the the finished block has a very dynamic look.

I love your oak leaves. With all the white in the background, it is right in style with the modern movement. Looking forward to what you decide to do with the quilting.
