I’m excited about two tree quilts I finished in February, one Birch Trees 16 in Spring and the other Birch Trees 17 in fall. Both of these quilts depict the essence of “spring” in one and “fall” in the other. The Birch tree 17 quilt was the first time I tried a new technique of creating almost a full background quilt upon which I layered Birch Trees in the foreground. I used colors for the background trees which almost completely blended into the background colors. I like the effect it created.
