This week my kids watched a bunch of TV, ate picnics outside (because the table was covered in fabric!) and my house looks like a tornado hit it, but I made a quilt in one week! I had planned to enter this quilt into the State Fair and realized Tuesday that the due date was this Saturday not next Saturday! I didn't think it was possible, but I finished it and turned it in with 15 minutes to spare. :)
I am loving it. I think tree quilts are my thing. I think it is the only type of quilt I have made multiple times. The original Tree Quilt, the Baby Tree Quilt, the Commissioned Tree Quilt and now My Tree Quilt.
I quilted it by writing the names of different trees across the quilt. More closeups later. The backing was some vintage cloth from my friend's grandmother's stash. In fact, I didn't have to buy anything for this quilt, which was good because I didn't have time to run into town. :) The cut down tree was the idea of my friend Eva-Marie. I love it!
I also turned in my circle of geese block for the Quilt Block competition. I reduced the pattern by 75% so that it met the 9.5 inch size requirement. I love this pattern! Wanting to make a circle of geese block was what motivated me to learn how to paper piece last year.
Now I am going to take a deep breath, relax and clean the house. ;)
