Sew-In Results - "When Nature Calls" - Finished

 All done and I'm so happy!
I went with an old dead tree with long branches and a surprise at the end.
Measures roughly 56" by 68"
BTW, all from my stash!!!
Note the tissue!!!
Turning the corner on the first side adds a lot of interest, along with all the gnarly branches.
The wood-zie looking fabric did the trick.  
Don't be afraid to buy that unusual looking fabric.
I decided not to go all the way round the quilt with the tree branches.  I've used this method in several quilts and like the effect.  What do you think??
Several bloggers have asked me to do patterns for this quilt, so I'll be developing those in the next few weeks to share with everyone.
Now, I'll have to get this little one quilted but that's for in the far, far future.
