trees!

I finished my trees quilt!
I LOVE it! (x 100!!!)
The pattern is done and available for purchase, if you are so inclined. :)

This pattern writing thing isn't a one woman job. I had plenty of help along the way and I'm so grateful!
A huge thank you to my neighbor Mary for helping me photograph this thing yesterday in the freezing cold!
Thank you to Beth for testing the measurements and providing such helpful feedback.
Thank you to Tara and Brianne for proofreading. On short notice, too.
Thank you to Allison for insight and tips on pattern writing and image quality.
And last but not least, a great big THANKS to all of you for your excitement and positive feedback on this pattern! It kept me going.

Now, on to the next project!
Happy Thursday!
xoxo
Amanda Jean

I adore this quilt! I will definitely be buying the pattern. I love that you collaborated with Allison. Yours and her blogs were the first two blogs I discovered when I first wanted to learn to quilt and turned to the web for help. I have your book Sunday Morning Quilts and will buy her new book, but wouldn't it be cool if you two did a book together? It would be a dream come true for me!

Awsome!!

Cutie and Company Quilts said...

I love this!!! There are so many variations on trees and this one is extra zesty. It gives you the chance to use value-play because the trees' background is seen through the trees. Does that make sense, lol? It's beautiful!!!

beth said...

congrats on another winner. ;)

Kelli H said...

Great job... I've been waiting on the pattern and just bought it. It's the perfect xmas quilt - big, bold, and whimsical.

Lynda Otvos said...

Love the trees, always been a big tree fan and moved to CA to live near the Giant Redwoods. May have to make this quilt or a similar one to honor those magnificent beings.

Fran said...

It's just delightful, there's something so cheerful and uplifting about it :-)

Fidike said...

I love it too!

Oh, it's charming! Hmmm, I'm thinking of my strip-scraps drawer...

bloominworkshop said...

Way to go! What a great finish!

terrieannie said...

Those ice cream colored fabrics are just plain yummy!

Sara said...

Extremely cute! And I think choosing those sherbet colors instead of normal tree colors really made the quilt SING!

evaj said...

It's beautiful!!Eva Bambi J

Becky said...

It turned out great! I can't imagine writing quilt patterns all the time. I've done about...one. You are so very talented!

Cheryl Arkison said...

I might have to add this one to the potential Christmas quilt list!

Allison said...

LOVE!!!! Doesn't it feel good to have it done!!! ;)

Jenny said...

Carmen took my comment. I guess it wasn't very original, but it was heartfelt!

Sharon - Lilabelle Lane said...

Love this one, well done. I am busy working on a Pezzy Churn Dash Block quilt .... thank you for the inspiration. Hugs

Cheerful Homemaker said...

Very nice! I really like the colors you chose! :)

Random question: I know you have lots and lots of fabric. When you buy stuff, do you buy fabric in fat quarter bundles or do you purchase yardage?

Dolly said...

Oh, AmandaJean, this is just so scrumptious. You have a beautiful way with color as well as with design. I could just sit and look at this for the whole evening ....(well, if I didn't have to run and start the dinner, that is......SHUCKS !)

Sherryl said...

I will absolutely be making this quilt this year! Love it!

elletaylor said...

I loved this when you first showed us what you were doing. It is even better all put together and finished. So glad you even wrote a pattern. Thanks for your Friday finish posts. I get a lot of inspiration from all the people who post their finishes. Keep up the great work! We love it. K-
