This time last year I was working on "Oh Christmas Tree" by Farmhouse Threads. It was a great December project and this weekend I enjoyed going back and reading my December 2009 posts. That's one of the many things I enjoy about having a blog, it's such a great reminder of the highs and lows of my quilting projects, this project was nothing but highs.
Oh Christmas Tree is home from the quilter. Dawn, at The Sewing Basket, did a wonderful job of bringing this tree to life.
The back shows the amount of detail and thread that went into quilting the tree.

The detail on the front is amazing too,
the star shines brightly,
and the trunk looks like it was just cut.
Whoops, one ornament fell off somewhere between Dawn's shop and my house!
I've got to do something about that....
As soon as I finished Oh Christmas Tree on the first day of 2010, I immediately starting thinking about how I would display it, and I thought about it for 11 months....
It's wonderful to have this quilt home and hanging,
right where I wanted it . . .
This is lifetime quilt number 53, it finished at 66" X 75 ", and has approximately 4,950 pieces.
