    Batik Forest

    This wall hanging is paper pieced; the pattern was from an old McCall's from 2009, called Jeweled Forest. I guess it was meant to be a Christmas project, as it was in the Nov/Dec issue and hanging over a table that had a bowl of tree ornaments. But I love it so much that it is going to hang year 'round. I used batiks in the trees and borders, and their backgrounds are an assortment of tone-on-tones of white, cream and tan.

    Stunning! I think it will do just fine year round!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I've made Jeweled Forest too...such a eye-catching design. What about changing up the color scheme for spring, fall and winter? That might be cool too...hmmm....always thinking....lol

    As much as I love this pattern, I'm too old to start making something twice, too many things on my "quilting bucket list" LOL
