I made this for onegroovyday in the MAQ5 swap. She had a painting on pinterest and she had put in the description “this just makes me HAPPY” so I went with it.
It is all appliquéd by hand and it measures 26 ¼ X 14 ¼. I machine quilted around the tree and houses.

Close up of the houses






Teeny tiny yoyos with seed beads and Swarovski crystals in the center



Here it is hanging up in its new home!



I really enjoyed doing this and I miss looking at the swirly tree!

Just incredible. The fabrics and all the components make it such a great piece of art, and not just a quilt.  Smiley
