Pure Elements by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery fabrics. They are super smooth and I wasn't sure how I felt about that, but they sewed and quilted up nicely. Hurray!
solid fabric is Ocean Mist by Connecting Threads. I am quite fond of their solids, as you probably already know. :)
The center strip is my favorite one in the whole quilt. It finishes just a bit over 1/2" wide. So itty bitty! It makes me squeal a little bit every time I see it.
If you are interested in making your own bright birch trees quilt, you can find the pattern in my shop. The pattern is sold as a pdf only, so a file will be sent to your email address used in your pay pal account.
*All proceeds from the sale of this pattern now through December 31 will go to a friend who is raising funds for an upcoming adoption! If you would like another way to help (please do!) you may purchase a calendar here, which will help bring their baby Tulip home. (If you do purchase a calendar, please be sure to use the coupon code TULIP at checkout.) Thanks for your help!
Happy Monday to you!
Eeeeeeeee! I love this, Amanda. And now I'm adding a sentence because this seems like a very short comment if I leave it as is and doesn't properly convey how much I absolutely adore this quilt.ReplyDelete
Really gorgeous! I'm a huge fan of using every little scrap too! Fabric is so expensive it just kills me to throw anything out that could be *used* some time in the future! I may have to grab this pattern :-)ReplyDelete
Great quilt girl, you've done it again! Thanks for the sharing.ReplyDelete
p.s. I love that you 'take sundays off'.ReplyDelete
Beautiful quilt...love the "news flash" on how you feel about scraps!ReplyDelete
Love it!! You're right, the teeny-tiny strips are perfect!ReplyDelete
I love this quilt! And double sided too boot!ReplyDelete
Bright Birch Trees is awesome!ReplyDelete

What a bright, fun quilt! Love the colours and the bonus of it being double-sided. Happy Holiday Season :)ReplyDelete
Amanda, I ordered your pattern and this quilt definitely goes onto my 2013 list along with 3 other items. I love its scrappy parts highlighted onto the solids...in taupe-y backgrounds this would make a nice guy's quilt I think. thanks JulieroseReplyDelete
What a great quilt, and a terrific way to use up the smallest of scraps!ReplyDelete
Amanda, I love your bold use of solids against the strips of scraps. You are an inspiration to me.ReplyDelete
I see lots of my scraps in there. I remember you just stripping them all together. I really love this quilt and how it looks like birch trees.ReplyDelete
Simply stunning! A very cool, unique quilt :)ReplyDelete
Ohhhh, you've outdone yourself this time, Amanda!! This is moving up to the top of my favs of yours. Good work!!!ReplyDelete

This is a great quilt! I just sorted ALL my scraps this past weekend - I cannot part with any of them. I just got the pattern and will shoot for a 2013 finish! Happiest of holidays to you and your family!ReplyDelete
Fun! I knew it was birch trees before reading the name!ReplyDelete
This is STUNNING Amanda Jean! You are amazing. Every time I look at my scrap baskets I think of you. (AND, every time I throw out any little snippet I think of you, too!) Merry Christmas to you and your family!!ReplyDelete
Fun quilt! Once again your generosity warms my heart. Heading now to purchase your pattern. Best wishes to your friends in bringing baby Tulip home.ReplyDelete
I adore this quilt! I intended to make a similar version when I saw the blocks you started, but life and school always get in the way of my sewing. Someday, I will actually make one too. Such a great way to use snippets and bring some more nature decorating into our house.ReplyDelete
Your quilt is so much fun!!!ReplyDelete
This is such a fun and pretty quilt - perhaps my favorite one ever.ReplyDelete
