Peg’s Paper Pieced Trees

Precision is found in paper piecing.  Getting crisp points is achieved easily with this method.  My friend and fellow quilter Peg is the Queen of Paper Piecing!  This is her latest project:

Peg wanted her trees to “pop”.  She chose the quilting design and asked that I change thread colors to blend with each block.  Her border was quilted to represent bark.  You can see a small portion of the border in the previous photo.

Thank you, Peg, for allowing me to quilt your trees and display the project here!

George Washington

George Washington

This quilt has distinct features.  Obviously, there is a star in the center, George Washington photos, and squiggles and swirls.  I do love squiggles and swirls, but I didn’t want to do an all-over, or pantograph, pattern.  I wanted to make that star “pop”.
