Enchanted Forest Quilt Pattern

$AUD 11.99

This is an unique pattern that creates two quilts – both a “positive” and “negative” version.

The positive version features dark trees against a lighter background while the negative version shows brightly coloured trees shrouded in the night darkness of a forest.

As you see from my examples, you can be very creative with your choice of materials and embellishments. A fun project for sure…

For the positive quilt I chose fabric with more autumnal tones then used buttons as leaves scattered on the ground and in the branches. The use of buttons as leaves creates a 3D effect on the quilts surface.

The negative quilt contrasts the very bright trees with the very dark brown of the forest at night. I quilted this with metallic thread to provide a bit of glitter in the forest. The contrasting stripes are cut from Burmese silk to lend additional sheen.

Using this tree template and the fusible web, you can go on to create your own version using four trees and show the four seasons. In choosing fabric, make sure you have good contrast between the trees and the background.
