Default 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.
