Seeing the Forest through the trees.

Can you feel the breeze blowing through the trees?

Quilted wind pattern

This is the second, hand-quilted, tree quilt where I used the idea of creating the feel of the breeze blowing through the trees. Freehand quilting is definitely not as easy as it looks, but I am really happy with the results that hand quilted lent to it.

And for the back, I think I came up with the perfect woodlands fabric, Riley Blake’s Fox Trails.

Does it remind you of last years “What does the fox say” video?? I thought so, too!

Hope you love it, Baylor, and know just how much love was stitched into it, especially for you!!

    The quilting design is perfect for the pieced design! What color thread did you use?

  5. It’s fabulous, Lori! I love the colours of the trees and the whimsical quilting. It all goes together so beautifully!

  6. It looks great, I love crazy mom quilts scrappy trees and one day want to make something similar – one day!

      Funny, I had it in my head that this needed to be done it hot pink and turquoise and really bold colors, but I’m glad I challenged myself to see it in “boy” colors, because I might even like it better being calmer. You should try it, it was really quick. Thanks for stopping by, Sarah!

    This looks like the Klimt painting of birch trees Very effective

      Ha Ha! We have several Klimt prints in our home. I actually can see “The Tree of Life” from where I quilt in the evenings. You are very perceptive! Thank you

    This is wonderful! I really like the pastel backgrounds and the “brights” tree trunks…and yes, I can definitely feel the breeze! I would love to try this pattern sooner or later, too :)
