Oh Christmas Tree Completed

This is the quilt that I was working on when I stopped blogging in 2011. It is called "Oh Christmas Tree" by Don't Look Now designs. 

I started this one in the fall of 2011 and it was finished by June 2012.

The applique tree is made from a single piece of fabric (which was no small feat) and is satin stitched down. I no longer satin stitch applique. I prefer the more "forgiving" blanket stitch. It is so much less stressful and much, much faster, which helps me enjoy the process more!

For the quilting I did an all over meander in a variegated thread.
For the back, I used flannel and added my signature mark; my monogram.
I love it and we use this one a lot.
