What materials did you use? Mother's left over cotton cloth

What are you most proud of? That it actually looks like something you can recognize, and not a kindergarten project, like most of my other attempts at anything crafty.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? don't be afraid to just start somewhere. I didn't know i had a talent, or love for quilting till I just started doing it. Also, get some friends who are in different stages of the quilting learning curve, they will help you get past the bumps in the roads, and make your quilting journey much easier than trying to reinvent the wheel every time.

I love the way you used flying geese in a slightly different way. One day I will try to learn how to make flying geese.

That's so funny! You are quilting "circles" around me and talking about maybe doing Flying geese.... Where, to me, that's the easiest thing...

I Love this it is beautiful, do you have a pattern? I am just trying to learn was it really hard because it is georous!

It was SOOO easy! here is a web page, with basically the same pattern on it ( http://quilting.about.com/od/blockofthemonth/ss/christmas_tree.htm ) I did not break up my blocks in the background color, but, it's one continuous block on each side of the tree (not 2 as shown in the pattern)

also, I tried to make a shawdow box around each tree, but, it was our first attempt and neither my mom nor I really knew what we were doing with it, the rest was just measure and sew..no real rhyme or reason to it all
