Hey, I recognize that!   Grin

I used black thread on the black tree when I did mine and used an itty bitty satin stitch.  It gave the trunk and branches texture. I'm impressed you were able to use the clear thread without problems!  I've had it get "knotty" for me.

Love the background!  Good job!

Thanks! I just used the clear thread on the area around the tree with black on the back ( I really had to play with the tension though) and though its kind of hard to see I used black on the tree with a small zigzag around it and kind of filled in the trunk and branches with some gold and a variegated fall colors.... you're the one that gave me the idea; I loved your quilt so much I tracked down the pattern and ordered it the same day, thanks for the inspiration!
