Finish: Modern Trees Quilt-Along
I'm happy to have another quilt finished!
This is my "Modern Trees" quilt that was inspired by the quilt-along organized by Christa Quilts. It was a lot of fun to make: this was a quilt that came together easily. I saw the post talking about the quilt-along, ordered the triangle template that is used to make the tree, had the idea to try slicing my trees to create garlands on my trees, decided I wanted more negative space around my trees...and voila - here is my quilt! Not quite according to the original pattern in the quilt-along, but I love it. (I will say it was quite difficult to photograph the saturated greens and stark white background fabric.)
All the fabrics used in the quilt top were found in my stash: various Kona Cotton solids in shades of green and "rich red." The white fabric is some mystery fabric that I found in my cupboard.
I treated myself to having the quilt long-arm quilted by Plain Jane Quilting, and I love how it the "meandering loops" pattern turned out. I wanted the quilting to look like blustery wind and blowing snow. I also had her quilt-in-the-ditch around each tree and around the red borders.
The quilt is 64 by 55 inches and is my third finish in my Q4 Finish-a-long!
I decided to keep the quilt for myself and am looking forward to much snuggling under the quilt this holiday season.
