    Oh, I love your tree. I am working on a thread painting tree also, although mine is much smaller.

    Thank you all for the wonderful comments. This is the first that I've ever done for someone else. The day she came to pick it up, I was really nervous and didn't want to part with it. I told my husband that if she didn't like it, I'd offer to buy it from her! She paid me more than I'd asked her for so I know she liked it too. I've only ever quilted 5 things before this one and I really did it to help her out. It was done on a sit down Sweet 16, and it's the first, the others were done on my regular sewing machine. Thank you again for the comments. I really appreciate them all.

    It took me about 70 hours to do - maybe a bit more. I found that I really loved doing it.

    You can do anything if you are prepared to practice and not let yourself get discouraged. I have done so few projects, but I try to practice quilting for at least an hour every couple of days. I have watched A LOT of videos on the net but I've listened to what the experts say about it. It just takes time to get the feel for it. I've found Leah Day to be most helpful.
