|Christmas trees quilt made by Shasta Matova|
Today, I am presenting you this quilt from way back when. When was it? Oh yes, this February. I completed this quilt in time for President's Day this year.
Why? Because A Quarter Inch from the Edge is sponsoring a Throwback Thursday link, and I thought I should give you a break from showing another couple rail fence blocks and circles.
|Christmas Trees quilt in progress by Shasta Matova|
This was a fun little quilt to make with improv piecing. I was able to use some holiday and other fabric that had been sitting in my stash for a long time and make this quick project. I am sure I was probably supposed to be working on some other UFO or WIP, but hey, at least I finished it!
I just had to throw in this dark picture of my design floor because of what she said on her blog about dark pictures and design floors being vintage. Sorry, it is still my normal state.
|Christmas Trees Quilt in Snow by Shasta Matova|
I was able to photograph the quilt in the snow in February. We had a few tiny snowflakes fly this winter, but.the real snow hasn't started yet. I am avoiding watching the weather but I'm pretty sure it will come soon.
The pattern was free from Diary of a Quilter. She called it Patchwork Forest tree. I liked her straight line quilting and so I duplicated it, but of course I had to make it hard for myself and not quilt the trees so they would stand out a little bit. I am still afraid to try free motion quilting with the new machine, so I twisted and turned the quilt every which way to go back and forth row by row. It was a fun little quilt to make. My finish size is approximately 18" x 26".
