    Absolutely beautiful!! Did you design the entire quilt or change up a pattern. I would love to make this quilt if can pass on the name of the pattern or how you made this wonderful quilt. Happy retirement!

    Thanks for all the kind words, folks! I have made this kind of tree several times over the years and don't remember where I got the idea, but here is how to make the tree...I'm sure there are lots of you that can out-do me on the embellishments!
    I first cut a large triangle from (40 inches across at the bottom, 50 inches tall) green and white fabrics (use colors of your choice) This made 2 large elongated flying geese panels. One with a green tree and one with white tree in the center. To give the tree it’s branches, I cut the green one into 2 ˝ inch strips and turned the strips upside down and stitched them back together (I numbered each strip with chalk pencil to be certain I got them back in the right order. This gives the tree it’s ‘branches’. Add embellishments and borders as you like! Very easy quilt with a minimum of piecing.

    The quilt is a beauty.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Congratulations on your retirement! What an amazing quilt. I would consider that a keeper and have trouble parting with it.

    You couldn't do a better job of showing how much you think of your landlords. Every thought to the placement of the components, colors and details show love and care.

    Smack my forehead! I'm blown away with the beautiful job you did with this quilt! All that detail! Anyone would LOVE to own this quilt. Your intrepretation of what goes where is spot-on and well done. From your swirling leaves to the twinkling starsbursts to all those delicious waves your quilt draws my approving eyes! Those ribbons on your packages are delightful! My only complaint is that I don't see a close-up of your pieced wreath. Maybe you added a pic somewhere in the pages of all these replies that I was too rushed to search through. I want to drool over it, too. Congrats on beautiful work!!!

    I was not particularly fond of the wreath and that is why there is not close up. It is just a crazy patch block that I cut in a circle and then cut a circle out of the center of. I then applique'd a bow on it and I was done... Thanks, everyone for all the kind comments.
