This is my first ‘whole cloth/ applique’ style quilt.
I made it for my sister’s 30th birthday. In the hopes I will have niece or nephew one day to play on it.
I used a thicker batting than I normally would.
The tree trunk and branches are hand sewn and then free-motion embroidered with the sewing machine. The sun/moon has hand stitching around it as does the tree.
I’ve called it ‘A Bird Called Hope’. It was a good way for me to start. I’d like to do some more picture quilts.
