Oak Leaf Quilt. Hand-pieced and hand-quilted by Marguerite Johnson. Although decidedly different from ribbonwork, this quilter celebrates nature in her own personal way. She also subtly honors the sacred significance of the number four and the concept of balanced wholeness. Photo courtesy of Muriel Walker.
