Based on the same trees as those used in the Christmas Tree wall hanging,
these Winter Forest trees are loaded with snow!
Six curvy white trees circle around a single snowflake, creating a striking pattern, don't you think? I'm not sure which tree pattern I love more - the Christmas Trees or the Winter Forest. Fortunately, one can be displayed during December for Christmas, and the other in January for some winter cheer.
And just like the Christmas Trees wall hanging pattern, Winter Forest is also suitable for the confident beginner quilter. The pattern walks through cutting the wedges, placing the fusible trees and snowflake, and even how to do the binding on the those 120 degree angles - nothing is left out!
Last, but not least, the quilting on Winter Forest. I was originally thinking of stippling, as the background is not the feature of this piece. But it just wasn't quite right. Instead, I opted for a snowdrift look of rolling lines from the border up to the snowflake.
And I even added in a few snowflakes here and there.
A couple of simple snowdrift lines finish off the border.
Now I'm set for decorating in January: Winter Forest for the table, and Winter Feed for the wall.
