Christmas is Coming Early This Year...

Today I finished quilting the Christmas tree for a commission quilt.  I'm so pleased!

I agonized for months over how to make a Christmas tree that did not look like my six-year-old nephew drew it (no offense, sweetie, you're a wonderful artist!).

I started with three different evergreen-ish fabrics, cut into limb shapes, and overlapped onto each other.

Then I quilted it all over in a zigzag motion to simulate pine needles. 

On to the decorations!
