Tree-of-Life quilting

I started hand quilting the Tree-of-Life.  I am using brown thread for the trunk, and green for the leaves.

The batting is wool and it quilts like a dream!…the hardest part is threading the needle.  I am using a #11 needle and the eye is so small I almost need a magnifying glass to find it.

After I get all of the blue lines quilted I will rinse them out and go back and add some details.  The back shows the look without the marking lines

Happy Quilting

      Thanks Cathi….I do actually sleep…I just quilt fast…I am trying to go slow and make nice even stitches but it is hard for me to not just speed through it

    Love the convoluted and twisted trunk! Looks like a Hobbit could live at the base 🙂

    Enjoyed seeing pics of the flannel log cabin too. I could use that quilt here—it’s been raining here for days (seems like)!
