|It measures about 17" x 18" after washing and blocking it.|
While the design for these is all my own, they were inspired by other tree quilts I've found via pinterest (especially this one). But before I even saw the ones on pinterest I made this aspen quilt in 2010:
|35" x 45" wallhanging|
I did a few things differently this time. I made the lines and knots a little different, and started with a light tan thread and then added several lines of black. I think it adds a nice texture to it.
|An eco-friendly way to engrave a special something into a tree ;-)|
I used various fabrics from my stash--unknown white and tan (on the back), and Kona Charcoal for the binding. I used Connecting Threads tan thread, which my machine does not like (I've tried several colors in the past couple of months and fight with it every time), and Superior So Fine in black on the rest.
You can see my other tree quilts here.
As soon as I was finished with that tree quilt I started on the next one I've been cookin' up for the past several months. This is my F.C. quilt, aka my profanity quilt...The name will become apparent once I get to the quilting stage.
|So far using Kona Ash and various aqua/teal scraps.|
Even in these beginning stages it has changed and shifted quite a bit...I guess I am just "letting the spirit lead me" on it. :-)
