Make Me a Quilt : Barb

Barb's Treehouse
Hand dyed and commercial cottons
Fused, hand embroidered, machine quilted
30.5" x 24.5"



This is the biggest treehouse of the whole series! And it gave me the opportunity to use the Special Edition purple fabric that I have been saving for 'something special'. I am so glad I still had it for this piece.
I was given the size of 30x25", and almost got it exactly, within a half inch either way. That in itself is a challenge, and to make a Treehouse that large was the other challenge. But I did it and enjoyed every minute of the process. Merry Christmas Barb!

  5. Love the rainbow polka dots and the French knots. The small print pieces (looks like Kaffe Fassett fabric)add just a little more to look at, as though there isn't enough already! Another one of your quilts that is "Best Ever!"

  7. I love this piece, all of it, the colors, the strip of pieced fabric, the quilting in the sky, and the hand stitched circles. I'm so envious!

  9. It's really beautiful. Are the reds hand dyed? I've had trouble getting a really red red like that.
