Oak leaf and Acorn

Block #7 of my mandala quilt, the oak leaf and acorn is a traditional block and another one of my favorites.  There are many variations to this block;  this one is mine.  I redrew oak leaves in a swirly pattern and you get the idea of falling and flying autumn leaves.  I made this block just a couple of months ago too, when the fall colors were at their best.  Of course, some oak leaves stay on the tree - a beautiful contrast to snow covered pines.
