Birches and Virginia Creeper

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Birches and Virginia Creeper Link to website or photo What are you most proud of? The way the whole quilt top came together with the combination of string piecing and appliqued tree trunks. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with the string pieced background. I sewed strips to 4 inch squares of foundation. Then I trimmed them up, removed the foundation and used my fold and sew technique using a tear away foundation to piece. Once the top was done, I added the tree trunks and branches.
