Tree of Life

I have finished my version of Edyta Sitar's tree of life.  I added the oak leaf and crows.  I also bordered it with migrating geese using Deb Tucker's instruction sheet.  All made from scraps.  Not one thing purchased for this quilt.  I promise my fabric is like little bunnies -- breeding and multiplying.  I have been working on scrap quilts and still don't miss any fabric!!!!

The binding hasn't been hand stitched to the back yet but otherwise it is finished!!!  I like that word:


  1. Great job! I love it so much, especially the touches of appliqued leaves and birds - what tree doesn't have lots of both?

  2. Beautiful work. I found your blog through another one - and saw Ruffles.........I have that BOM and am printing it out to put on my Bucket List. It is a beautiful quilt and I think I will do mine in Batiks. Looking forward to your next posting.

  3. Hello, your version of Edyta Sitar's Tree of Life is absolutely perfect! I am wondering where you found the patterns for the oak leaves, crows and weather vane? My niece has asked me to make her a Tree of Life quilt and it very difficult to find anything even close to yours. Thank you in advance. I look forward to hearing from you soon. xo
