I made this quilt for the off season Project QUILTING Challenge - Baby It's Cold Outside. I LOVE Christmas trees and have a little collection that I put up every year at the holidays. I knew I had to make a fun little tree quilt for the challenge. The white background represents the snow we SHOULD have covering the ground here in Wisconsin. Each tree is wonky and fun. Vertical straight line quilting added another fun dimension of texture to this piece.
The vertical lines are not all evenly spaced and I used three different colors of aurifil thread 22892 (darker green), 1147 (lime green) and 2250 (poppy red).Approximate Dimensions: 17.5" x 26"
Created in Poynette, WI
I have two more Christmas-type mini quilts to quilt up … I’m hoping I don’t loose my motivation now that the holiday is over …
