This time Project Quilting asked us to sew anything but a square. As the first trees start to bloom around here I decided to make a postcard with a blooming tree.
I started with the tree cutting it freehand and sewing it down (freehand as well) adding some twigs.
Then I added some pink blooms. I cut them really small but they still seemed too big.
So I dug into my yarn stash and found this variegated pink embroidery yarn.
Perfect for blooms.
Many french knots later my “Ode to Spring” was finished.
A great way to welcome spring!
