A Year in the life of a tree quilt – the end

Back in January 2016 my partner in sewing crime and I each started a tree quilt. Essentially the course delivered by the lovely Marion at Love Heart Home was delivered once a month for a year and we would hope to have the lovely very quilt completed in the New Year. As you can see from previous posts it was taking a little longer than planned.

Well two years and a bit longer actually. But hey, it’s finally done and I’m quite pleased with the end result.

If you can’t see the detail, it’s a family tree in the middle, the seasons in each corner and different blocks of patchwork in between. Thanks to Marion’s guidance I used a paler fabric for the sashing and used the darker colour to back and edge.

I added some patchwork interest to the back (partly because I had limited backing fabric) and was pleased with how that worked.

What do you think?
