What was your inspiration?
A friend commissioned me to make something for her round dining table. I was inspired by a very similar design I saw in the keepsake quilting catalogue except there's was larger and had 9 trees. I wanted to do this piece with alternating red and greens, therefore I had to have an even number of trees.
What are you most proud of?
I love the quilting in the centre - I hadn't planned for it to be like that I just started at the outside and worked my way into the centre and the design worked it self out - i love that it ended up looking kind of like candles...
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't be afraid to alter other peoples designs, it just takes a bit of thought, time and maths :)
