Laurel Leaf


The little quilt for my sister’s housewarming is done – and I admit to using all the quick finish ideas I could think of! I did change the border, as once I had the thought that it looked Christmas-y, it stuck in my head. I changed it to white, as that is Carolyn’s favourite “colour” – and used the original border as binding. I fused the bottom of the hanging sleeve to the quilt, and I pinked the edges of the label and fused it on. As taken from Elly Sienkowicz’s book, the laurel leaf is said to represent “triumph, victory, eternity, success and renown, pride and good fortune”.
