The tree print was the theme with the grey check as background. Four additional prints in the collection supplied the accoutrements.
The drawn plan is based on our Brioche and Baguette pattern. The proportions work well, they just had to be adjusted for a double bed sized quilt. I wanted the larger focus print to run both vertically and horizontally for more action while the squares are pops of smaller scaled prints.
The large scaled print portions were cut from adjacent sections so that the print reads succinctly.
The backing provides another quilt opportunity: Two for One! Leftovers plus some additional yardage created a second option.
Half square triangles mingle with contrasting stripes to create a horizontal chevron. Fun and easy!
A viney leaf print quilted the layers together. Amy Messenbrink added her special touch with the "Leaves" quilting pantograph!
An appliqued monogram (with essential documentation written in permanent pen) makes the gift complete. No more worries of a hand sewn quilt label. Once the binding was finished, it was delivered to the birthday girl!
We're hoping the new year brings you lots of quilting time...with many happy memories!
