Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
This may have been on before, but I finally decided to show it. The ribbon is a first and later another one for "Viewers' Choice" - happy dance!

Thanks again for the kind comments on this and my other quilts.
Lori asked about close-ups/pattern. I may have some close-ups. You can email me privately? epm.mail.444 @ gmail.com (remove the spaces). I do not have a pattern for sale. This is a one of a kind. Also, the tree is mostly one fabric, and I doubt is is available now. It was cherry tree branches on a dark background and I fussy-cut for each piece. Also used a panel that is not around any more. It was a cheesy scene of cherry trees with lots of branches, but fussy cutting and placement made it look far better than it was.
Suggestion: Get Ruth McDowel's books "Design Workshop" and "Piecing Workshop" and try one of your own! I'm sure you can. It is easier than it looks!
A lovely ribbon, and well deserved for such a beautiful quilt!
Thank you for your kind remarks on this one and my other quilts. This cherry tree was done using Ruth McDowell's method for curved piecing. It is not as difficult as it looks. The hard part was finding the right fabric and then figuring out how to quilt it. Fortunately, a local shop had a class on selecting quilt designs for difficult quilts with none other than Claudia Pfeil... it was a pricey class, but so worth it! She overlaid mylar on each quilt and drew ideas on the film, then let us take it home.
