On April 13th I posted an idea I had for doing these trees with (Forest Floor by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics).
Unfortunately I had some real problems with this piecing idea (pictured below). I used Soft Fuse which is a wonderful soft adhesive. However, with all the seams and the trees with all the curves and points it became a real problem. I ended up scrapping that and going for the tree tops done with a single fabric. I also used the regular Steam A Seam heavier adhesive. I adhered it to Essex White Linen. I am hoping with the idea of closely spaced straight stitching quilting I will not even machine appliqué around the tree edges and trunks. I plan to use it for a wall hanging so it will not get much wear and tear, or need washing. I am think about using one of her other prints around the bottom of the tree trunks a grass. Not exactly sure how I plan to get that accomplished yet.
Once again this is a project in continued process. So I am linking up with Brooke of Silly Mama Quilts and The Needle and Thread Network.
