Machine Quilting: Tree of Life Mini

Well, this isn't a true mini, but it's small, so that's got to count for something!
 Anne has this amazing ability to play with color and if you couldn't tell, she LOVES pink! I couldn't wait to play with this quilt after seeing the vibrancy of the colors.
 I used some back & forth lines with swirls and pebbles to soften the overall appearance of the quilt and give it texture without taking away from the tree. Then I used two different types of quilting in the "leaves". Just a little something to add interest and break up the individual pieces.
 This quilt was so much fun and so cheery!
Here's a look at the back, I try to keep in mind with quilts like this to emphasize the different areas so when you see the back of the quilt, there's no denying what is what. Here you can see the tree leaves and the trunk with some of the borders surrounding it.

Anne also made another version of this quilt that I will be showing tomorrow. Come back then to see the big sister to this quilt! Thanks, Anne! I always have so much fun with your quilts!
