Quilt # 84.
|O Tannenbaum III|
This is my UFO Challenge 2012 for April. A challenge issued by Judy Laquidara at Patchwork Times.
#10 – DONE!
This is my fourth UFO to be completed. I finished March's before the deadline but could not link it up as I was travelling and had no computer access.
O Tannenbaum III is (obviously) the third in a series of stylized trees. O tannenbaum I was made up of 4 blocks as a Christmas table topper. I had good intentions of making another one and made 4 more blocks but did not like them together, so I will make 4 wall hangings. (2 down – 2 to go) See I and II here.
This is what I started out with this month:
I found another batik in the 'right' colours and added 2 borders.
The quilting features some feathers as learned from the Diane Gaudynski free motion quilting workshop, and stippling in the background. Love quilting feathers!

The back is made up of a piece of hand dyed and left-overs from the front.

I added a facing instead of a binding and incorporated my label into the sleeve.
