The making of

Tranquility.
Wordless Wednesday......almost

 Have the pattern reduced in size
Tape it onto a piece of plex-i-glass

Trace onto fusible web

Select the fabrics
making sure you put your favourite in
fuse the appliqué pieces in place
take a few hours to stitch it all down
check to make sure you "got it all"
Spend an afternoon machine quilting the piece
This is a new Fantastico thread by Superior Threads
and this is a King Tut variegated
 all done!
sew a sleeve in place
make a label
 sew on the binding
Take a day at stitch and chat to do the hand sewing and voilà
it is done!
Not much to it at all.

After I snapped this photo at the Museum I turned around and saw this.  I know it's there, I've seen it many times.  I could take my Muskoka chair down to our harbor, sit near the tree and watch the sun go down.

Wow girlfriend, you always make things sound so easy. LOL It is a beautiful and tranquil quilt. Love the colors. You did an awesome job on those. And the real tree at the museum...wow, how cool is that.
