I finished the tree of life quilt. Here it is with all the quilting ready to have the markings washed out
When I had nearly All the quilting done I decided that some of the smallest tree branches were not standing out enough so I decided to stuff them. I used a large needle (an upholstery needle for tufting) and wool roving yarn
It is a very big needle! Here is is next to my quilting needle.
Here it is after washing
I will block it to flatten and square it up a bit and then add a hanging sleeve and that will finish it.
So how long did it take? The best guess I have is about 350 hours +/- but I am never good at recording the actual hours that I work on a project.
Here a bunch of pictures, click to enlarge.
