Branching Out

20 Jan

I started piecing the tree quilt for my friend today. I’ve alternated between staring at and ignoring a table full of little squares and rectangles for a few weeks now, and today struck me as a day to do something about it. I haven’t finished cutting yet, but I needed a clearer sense of what the squares were going to look like before I committed to all of those little pieces. And now I know!

I’m really looking forward to see how this comes together, because it won’t look anything like I originally planned. None of my quilts have so far–and I like it that way.

    This is a really cute look! I think I`ll achieve the same idea as the tree pattern by cutting out some cotton or craft felt (the higher quality felt, that is) and hand stitching the abstract leaves down. More time involved, but it should turn out really cute!

I'd love to hear from you! Leave a comment.
