I pressed/ironed Lite Heat and Bond on the backside of the fabrics.
I cut the fabric into tiny squares --- 3/4 inch.
Let them cool and peel off the paper from the Lite Heat and Bond.
Made a trunk of the tree with the greenish fabric.
Press/iron the pieces in place on the black fabric.
I used 2 layers of batting - Hobbs 80/20 (Cotton/Poly) Batting on the bottom and Hobbs Washable Wool Batting as the top layer.
I quilted on the black fabric with a dark grey quilting thread with overall Paisley Swirl Quilting.
I selected Bermuda Blue for all the tree parts.
I stitched in Marcia and 2016 by the tree trunk.
I machine stitched on solid black fabric for the binding.
Another fun quilt created for the first Project Quilting Challenge for Season 7.
My finished quilt measures 18" by 24".
I named it " If Confetti Grew on Trees"
I create and quilt in Boscobel, Wisconsin.
I am linking up with all the other entries for this week's Quilt Challenge at Persimon Dreams - Project Quilting.
