This pattern is the "tree of life", and it is one of my favorite, I don't have time in my life right now to do this type of piecing, but I enjoy quilting them on my long-arm and bringing them to "life". This top was all hand pieced, and I have to tell you maybe the reason it was never finished was because let me tell you it did not lay flat whatsoever, the sewing was with some pretty large stiches and there was so much fabric gapping I had a very difficult time quilting it, I had to overlap the border in a couple of different places and sew it down.
The tree of life pieced blocks are alternated with the a plain pink, so I choose a turquoise thread to quilt a tree on those blocks.
All in all, even though she was a tough girl to raise, I love her, appreciate her for who she is, the flaws and beauty.
Have fun enjoying the "virtual" show! Stop back again and visit anytime.
