Wonky Scrappy Trees

I played around in sewing room yesterday and came up with this lovely little wall hanging.  I still have to finish tacking the binding down to the back but could not wait to share it. 

It is totally improv and I have so happy with how it turned out.  The trees are all cuttings from my scrap bin that I glued onto the white polka dot fabric (can't really tell in picture) so they are all raw edges.  Then I loaded it onto my longarm machine and used matching thread for each of the trees to take them down.  I used a sort of zig zag for the edges and then did a free motion tree shape over the top of the tree.

The background could not of turned out any better, exactly what I was going for.  I watch Leah Day's You Tube video on her Wavy Hair Design and then practiced on paper a bit before moving to the machine. 

I also did some sketching on paper and loaded up some practice fabric to be able to get my sketch of Bumble to work out just right.  Here is a close up of Bumble.  I don't think he turned out to bad.  This wall hanging finished up 25.25" x 42". 

Now to go finish putting the binding on and finish piecing my 2013 Lucky Stars quilt top so I can take it off the design wall.  

Thank you for stopping by and visiting.
