|O Tannenbaum V|
This is my last entry for the UFO Challenge 2012 issued by Judy Laquidara at Patchwork Times. Have a look at what everyone else has accomplished.
This was #9 which is actually the November challenge. It did not get done in November but I have now completed all of my UFOs from this challenge except for December's and a bit of quilting to finish on my October's challenge. All the posts for this project can be seen here.
It was a good year for UFO busting, thanks Judy! Still lots in the pile but it is definitely getting smaller. I'm really trying to complete everything that I start now!
O Tannenbaum V is the fifth in a series of stylized trees.
This is what I started out with this month:
|from the UFO pile|
I added the four corners using the 2 same batiks that were in the block.
|Corners added and top marked for quilting|
And here's what the back looked like:
|quilting - back|
I made a matching piping using some of the green fabric, added it around the front piece.
|cushion back - zipper - piping|
The back is a 100% cotton brown print to which I added an invisible zipper before sewing to the front section.
I signed and dated it at one edge, using one of the alphabet stitches on my machine.

Wishing all a Very Happy 2013!
