6 | Testing out a Quilting Pattern for My Wonky Tree Quilt

Once the top of my wonky tree quilt was finished, it was time for quilting! Although I could have just made a quick sandwich to try out the pattern I was thinking about, a loopy star pattern that wasn’t too tight, I wanted to do something else for the trees, so I figure out I should put a few of these triangular scraps:

made while piecing all my wonky tree blocks to good use, so I pieced up this 24″ practice piece:

and tried out my loopy stars, (with a couple of birds) pattern, and did a spiral in at the bottom, out at the top pattern for the trees:

I like it so much that I turned it into a pillow!

On to the main event!
