I had seen a similar tree applique on a few different pieces. I just hadn't found the perfect quilt to use it on.
This Super 9 block was cut a while back (talking years ago) when I wasn't quite as educated on the quilting process. The center block is directional and going the wrong direction. LOL! It worked out perfect for this tree because I needed a short but wide area.
The tree is on a cream fabric that has a gold shimmer. I quilted detail on the leaves and tree trunk.
In the open areas I did a couple of varieties of meandering. In the corner squares, I included one large leaf.
Back of quilted leaf.
I adore this backing. I got it at Ikea of all places.
I'm going to cry after it is all gone.
This piece was originally designed to be a lap quilt but given it's horizontal nature, it would make a wonderful wall hanging. You could also drape it over the back of a couch. Don't forget to visit Etsy to see more pictures of this listing and many others!
