|The quilt edges are so wavy because of the wire fence pattern.|
The design embodies an old traditional motif, the Tree of Life, which I gave a particular layout, making it out of two mirrored stylized trees, one composing the top half of the quilt and the other - the bottom half, as you look at the picture above.
This is The Marriage Tree and brings together His Tree of Life and Her Tree of Life (the two quilt's halves).
At least that was my vision, for the sake of quilt's aesthetics.
I chose to try binding it using the quilt back. It was so simple, fast and fun! I am sure I will use this method again.
The quilt is not heavy, despite its dimensions, due to the cotton batting.
For the first time, I used for quilting Aurifil thread 50 wt. My sewing machine liked it so much that there was no need of any special tension adjustment. The thread has not broken even once.
Until next post,
Have only beautiful days, my dears!
