Pine Hill

I think I'm going to call my tree quilt "Pine Hill" because that's where I grew up in Dunedin.  I went to Pine Hill Playcentre, and Pine Hill School. And the trees on my tree quilt look like pine trees to me.

It's really hard to get a good photo of this quilt.  The trees are quite bright in real life, but the whole quilt looks dull whenever I photograph it.  I don't know why that is.  

The brightness of the back makes up for any dullness on the front.  I used a large piece of Kaffe Fassett Diamond Stripe on the back, and inserted some fussy cut Kaffe Fassett Damask Flower to make it big enough.  

I had my quilt quilted at Busy Bee Quilt Shop and I chose an all over meander design.  

I'm going to give this quilt to my son and try and get him to part with this quilt so I can bring it home to wash it:

Your tree quilt is wonderful! Some quilts just don't photograph well for some reason. The quilt you're going to wash for your son looks like a fun project, happy stitching!

You are so right to name your quilt Pine Hill. Very appropriate for such a beauty. I think the backing is smashing as well. Have a wonderful weekend.

Cute trees, but that HST quilt is gorgeous!! Tucking away the idea of using an inner border sequence, genius!

A beautiful finish with Pine Hill and the back has one of my favourite designs - Diamond Stripe - but the addition of the vertical and horizontal strips really make it special.
Picnic Quilt using all those scrap triangles is another beauty, I like the first double border drawing the eye directly to the centre portion.
