Weekly Update - Irish Woodland Quilt Finished

The Irish Woodland quilt is finished! 

After I made the blocks, I attached the trees by hand.

Then I sewed all the blocks together. I attached the tree before I put the blocks together because appliquéing on one block is not a cumbersome as the whole quilt top. 

When I pinned together the layers, I used a local gym to get the space I need. I taped the backing to the floor and carefully laid each layer out.

Then I pinned it all together. I have a giant stash of safety pins just for this reason.

Then I spent many hours quilting it.

I did a cross hatch design on the squares and gave the trees some nice branches with some free motion quilting. I used a dark chocolate brown for the back and binding.

I really like the way it turned out. I really think the name suits it too. 

I tried to think of something with Bob Ross and tiny tree friends, but this is the best.
