    This is Linda's fourth quilt....but my favorite.....well maybe...I have to many favorites....but if this were mine I would hang it on the wall. It's so pretty!

    So for quilting I wanted to enhance the trees with leaves, and wood grain. I quilted little leaves and loops around the tree blocks. Then I put a leafy feather in the side setting triangles to bring it all in. For the birds and wreaths I echoed around the outside and filled them in with Swirls....to kind of break up texture and make it stand out.

    Beautiful quilt!

    I used my 26 innova and quilted all of this freehand. The batting is quilter's dream cotton.

    Thanks for looking.

    Oh beautiful detail!!! I love the tree bark and how it looks like wood.

    I've never used "quilter's dream cotton" does it compare to 80/20 Hobbs or in it's own catagory?

    Charisma, I have to say that this is my FAVORITE of all the ones you have posted. I love the quilt, and the quilting is subtle but effective in highlighting the best features of the quilt. I like it a lot....more than a lot!!!

    Perfection! What more could anyone say! My grandma used to tell me "the quilt top is the background to show off the beautiful quilting, not the other way around". I truly believe that when I see your work.
