Finished: Sherwood Forest Love- A Wholecloth Quilt for Lovebirds

Sherwood Forest Love


My "Sherwood Forest Love" tree quilt is finally done! (If we don't count that as a wall quilt, it still needs a sleeve.) I am so glad to have gotten this piece done so I can send it out to the newlyweds.

I really like how this has turned out. It had me stumped (I'm punny) for a while on the overall concept and then how to fill the background. Even though I'm not incredibly thrilled with the pine trees in the background, I like the overall effect.

I love, love, love, the dimensionality on this piece!


Sherwood Forest Love: detail

I finished the binding by machine and even shot two videos of the process for a future post. My method gives pretty great results and it takes a close look to tell that it wasn't finished by hand!
