Bringing Home the Tree


This is one of my favorite Christmas projects to date.  The Christmas tree quilting on the border was done using Bonnie Browning's method of mathless borders using adding machine paper (see episode 609).  After tracing the trees onto adding machine paper I then transferred that design onto Golden Threads Quilting paper and quilted the borders.  This method worked very well; I will definitely use it again.   I enjoyed using various free motion quilt designs in the blocks.
