Although I am very happy to have finished this year load project that was my 2nd quilt along, my heart weighs heavy.
The tree was started with Enzo, he was present with every single block and the construction of the tree. I always said he was such a slave driver but we know that is not possible. He provided so much companionship during the day when we were home alone and so often provided comfort. I’m so sad he was not able to model this beautiful finish for me.
Instead, that honor is left to Loki the Ornery who makes me laugh and smile and scream all at the same time, he keeps me on my toes every second of the day.

When I say the lighting in my home is horrible and inside photos do not show the true beauty of the fabric? See the difference?
Island Batik fabric
Island Batik is such a wonderful company to work with. When I told them I was planning the QAL and asked if they would provide the fabric it was generously provided. All of the fabric in this quilt can be found throughout the year in their Foundations Collection.
All dies were given to me by AccuQuilt for a previous project. They made the applique flowers and leaves a breeze. The flying geese border was cut using the AccuQuilt 6″ Flying Geese die.
The batting I used in this quilt is Hobbs Batting Cotton. Pieced and quilted using Aurifil Thread I purchased from fellow Island Batik Ambassador MaryEllen from MaryMackMadeMine.
