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 @ (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!

familiar w ruth mcdowel, but not w her curved piecing method. i personally love curved piecing and the look achieved w it. so, this looks like curved strips as in landscape design except for the tree. this quilt is so beautiful, i have tried zooming in, but lose clarity. but do see some piecing in green and lower areas of tree's pink. at first i thought it was a panel that you had added to and then did your incredible quilting. when i first started quilting years ago i used the clear plastic sold by yard from fabric store. walmart carries it now in 3 different weights. i still use the overlay for quilting pattern design, and the heavyer weight for different crafty things like my felt block design book shown in my album. great stuff it. and i really really love this quilt. it just beautiful!

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.
