Tree of Life

Tree of Life

Quilt Pattern/Name:  Tree of Life

Quilt Size:  55 inches by 55 inches

Quilt Maker:  pieced by Ann Tarabini/ machine quilted by Ruthmary Schauer

Quilt Completion Date:  finished in 2014

Extra Information: Each block in this quilt is made from leftover scraps from other projects.  I didn’t plan on the dusty blue alternative squares but the fabric seemed to help unify all the blocks.

I teach classes on sewing accurately.  This is a great block for testing your ¼” seams along with your cutting skills and your pressing techniques.  The small block in the border is a smaller version of the larger blocks. It was applied to the border at the last minute using appliqué.  (This is why I say everyone should learn to applique as every now and then it comes in handy.)

Ruthmary quilted the meandering pattern in border and then quilted a different design in the nine blocks and the alternative blocks.
