    I love this Christmas tree panel. I added 450 crystals, the kind of show up on the picture. While I was quilting I realized that I building free motion quilting skills. I learned alot from this panel. I have a Judy N quilt I am ready to quilt, but have been nervious about it so much time and money into material and pattern, I don't want mess up. I may do another panel before I tackle it.

    This is beautiful. The stitching gives the "magical" feel to the quilt. :>)

    Another beauty!!! Those crystals are so much fun to add, but they sure can take some time to apply as you well know (450 :shock: ).

    I think your idea to use your panel for FMQ practice is such a good idea. I should try this as I do not know how to FMQ. With a panel, I could do some thread painting , outline quilting, and FM backgrounds. Thanks!!!

    I bought it from Ebay. I think is searched for Christmas panels and it brought it up. It seems to be fairly popular. My quilt shop had the panel, but I live so far away from it. It was the same price as Ebay.

    I was just sitting here admiring your work with this Christmas Tree panel. Thinking how pretty it is and the nice job you did quilting it. My DGD brought the mail in and I had a new Keepsake Quilting catalog...thumbed through it quickly and low and behold there is the panely you used! So to anyone interested in that beautiful panel check with Keepsake Quilting!

    That is a beautiful panel, and it's a great way to practice free motion.
