    Unhappy Christmas Tree paper pieced

    I have completed a paper pieced Christmas Tree. It is a miniature of Sage Country Quilts Christmas Tree. I gridded the photo and enlarged it. My finished size is 30" x 40". I want to attach a photo but I do not see the "insert image" icon. This is my first time trying this.

    P.S. I changed my avatar to show it.

    Wow..that looks complicated!!! Well done you!! My brain won't compute to sewing back to front!!!! I so admire people who do master the technique!!! When you want to post pics click on 'quick reply', along the top there are several icons on the far right there is a square with a tree in it click on that and it will take you to upload pictures!! Hope this helps!!

    Thank you CoventryUK. I tried and there are no icons showing. Maybe one day. I paper piece using a folding method. I do not sew thru the paper but sew next to the folded paper. Makes it easier to figure out the size of the next piece of fabric. Tricky in the begining and the paper can be used again and again.

    You need to change your general settings to WYSIWYG. On the turquoise menu bar at the top of your screen click "Forum Actions". Then click General settings. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page under Miscellaneous Options and click the button for "Enhanced Interface Full WYSIWYG editing". Click the blue save settings box at the bottom. Like magic you will see the little tree icon for inserting images.

    Edited to add your tree looks very nice.

    Love it, so pretty. To upload a picture you have to scroll down to "manage attachments", click on browse to find your picture ( I usually put it on my desktop to locate it quickly), then click on upload. When you see the name of your picture come up your uploading was successful.

    It's easy peasy to post pictures from my iPad. I could never manage it from the main computer either. Love your Christmas tree!!

    Thank you feline fanatic. It took me awhile but I got it. Here is the tree in various stages. I figure it took about 20 hours to do.

    Please tell me where you got the pattern. The last time I saw this tree it was not paper pieced. Thank you in advance.

    I just got this pattern, opened it up to look at it and it looks pretty involved so it will wait until next fall to get done...

    Oh, I really like it! You did a great job! I love paper-piecing so I may just have to get this pattern in the new year!
    And look at that, you're just "up the road" from me!

    Just beautiful. I am trying simple little flying geese and the first thing I did was cut part of it off when I trimmed. You have it mastered, it would appear. Lovely.
