    I love the website I found most of these tree patterns on. (www.forestquilting.com) Thought I'd practice some beading for ornaments...guess I'd better get to work!

    I just love your trees!! I like the way you quilted your border on the 1st photo. They look very nice grouped on your wall like that! Great idea & I bet they look especially nice close up with all the beading. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh I love that!! I'm an outside girl and find the trees so soothing. Nice work!!

    I'm not familiar with foundation piecing, but it sure works for you!!

    Karla--I think you could be tempted to try paper piecing. Check out the webside for the Quilter's Cache. There's a 10" block named the Red Barn! C'mon--I bet you'll give it a go! :wink:

    I had been wondering who’d been chopping at the trees. HA! I love ‘em Leslee. Watching you stitch them on break isn’t the same as seeing the wall. See you soon :thumbup:

    Leslee--I just may--you've inspired me!! Yours are just wonderful!! I bookmarked the sight and will see what I can do. It'll be easier sicne nanabirdmo tempted us with that string square--so I get the idea now.

    The weird thing is thinking about sewing on the paper with the material on the opposite side?? That's what I read in some directions somewhere. Can't it be done from the top--or can't the lines be seen?
