Quilt no 35

Summer Magnolia
The background is ecru muslin with a blue sky made out of 1.5" square scraps. The tree is English paper-pieced hexagons which were hand-appliquéd to the background. The trunk of the tree is also needleturned appliqué. The tree is embellished with white flower buttons. It's machine quilted in an all over meander, and the sky has some free motion clouds quilted into it. It comes with a hanging pocket on it, and I'll add a label once I know who it's going to.

I've just looked back at the last 10 or so quilt having already seen the ones before and now I really really wish I had joined in (again!) ;o) The quilts are all beautiful and there are some really stunning and innovative ones here too. I think all the participants should be congratulated. And you Kate for organising it again.
