"Tree Time" and Design Wall Monday

Progress has been slow on the quilting of "Tree Time". I did complete all of the meandering on the white border blocks, but got bored with the straight line quilting on the blue and black blocks. I have only completed one side of these.

I have over half of the "tree" blocks quilted. I am using the "Icicle Lights" filler pattern. It is one of Leah Day's designs from "The Free Motion Quilting Project."  I check her website every couple of days to see what new ideas she has posted. When I saw this one I knew I would use it on one of my quilts. I have adjusted it to fit the needs of my quilt.

I still haven't decided how I am going to quilt the pieced blocks. Any suggestions?

Head over to Judy's Patchwork Times. I keep getting ideas for new quilts and projects.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. Your little trees are adorable.

  2. Your quilting is great! This quilt is a wonderful example of why I like applique and piecing quilts so much. Thanks for sharing

  3. Very very nice progress! The quilting is the hardest part. Maybe something more organic and curvy in the pieced blocks like leaves or stone shapes?

  4. Oh yes, leaf shapes in the pieced blocks would be such fun! It's looking good, Vivian! :)

  5. The quilting looks great from here! I can relate to getting bored with a design and having to bribe myself to finish it up!

  6. Very pretty! Your stitching is looking good. Leah really is a fabulous resource.

  7. That quilt is awesome. And your straight line quilting is looking great. Don't give up it's wonderful.
