Deana's "Colors In Fall"

I  just wanted to share this beautiful applique artquilt that my friend Deana pieced.  She was inspired by a photo of the quilt "Windswept", originally made by designer Nancy B. Dickey. I quilted it with Superior Metallic and Variegated Rainbows threads to simulate the veins in the leaves.  The background and borders are quilted with SoFine thread.  I also extended the leaves out into the outer border to draw the eye out to edges.  Interesting enough, I did not see Nancy's original quilt prior to quilting Deana's quilt.   Hope you enjoy.....
