Panels to Quilt

The above is a series of panels that I put together into a wall hanging for my sister in law.  I love the colours in the oak leaf and acorns and would love to make this on a smaller scale.  \once she has this quilted we will put prairie point borders on it to make it look country.  The rusts greens and browns in this particular block truly bring it to life and being so oversized the large print on the oak leaves works well.  I would make the block  a bit smaller, add some faded vintage beige for background and then pick up the colours and stitck with all rust rather than the rust red, but in the larger blocks it does look lovely.
