It was love at first sight! Months before Tula Pink's Acacia fabric range was released I set my heart on buying some.
Soon after it arrived I starting working on my ideas, only to pack everything away again and wait for a sizeable amount of white fabric to arrive.
Yes, happy with the borders of diamonds for it's too plain and narrow without them - but those trees do need trunks.
The colours have a lovely glow when viewed from behind. For a quilt like this I usually sew with seams slightly wider than a quarter inch as it feels more secure to me.
Yep, happy with this one and I love the name "Tula Trees" too. It's not a Christmas quilt yet has a festive air about it. I have one tree left to use on the back, when time permits.

This is great design Karen and the process you went though to get there!! And such wonderful, jewel-like colours! Lovely!
I think the addition of the trunks really grounds the trees and adds character - great idea! I love the picture of it in the sky - colours look amazing!!!

Wow, this is amazing. Thank you for sharing your process - I always like to see that. I love that the tree trunks are "hanging". Really adds to the modern feel and I think Tula would be proud!
