Tree Quilt Finished
Yes I know it's been too long since I last posted but I have actually done some quilting in that time! Remember this tutorial? I finished up my tree quilt and it's actually 'done-done' as in hanging on a wall.I played around with sashings and even sewed in red sashings. After sewing them in, I looked at them and thought, "hmmmm...do I really want it to look like Christmas year round in my house?"! I'm already half way there with green walls and red leather couches, so I don't need to encourage it any more than I already do!
However, I did notice that the sashing made it look a little like a window so I went with that idea, changed it to white, and called it a day. Quilting it was fun - I just echo-quilted around the trees.
Nancy from With Thread In Hand made a block using my tutorial which she turned into a pillow - I am in LOVE with it!
You can see her post about it here. I especially like how she fussy cut the tree fabric - amazing. And I like her leaves so much better than mine! It really makes me want to sew some tree pillows for the living room. Thanks so much for sharing, Nancy!
I'm posting a zig zag quilt tutorial in a bit, so you might want to hang around for a while!
