Island Batik Ambassadors Winter Wonderland - Part 3

Being an Ambassador for Island Batik is such fun!  I was staring at a set of red, gold, and green fabrics Island Batiks sent to me trying to decide what to do with them.  A little later I was ironing in my sewing room and there on my bulletin board was the answer.  I had a tiny picture of this tree that I'd cut out of something many years ago and there it was.  Perfect!  All those lovely green would make a fabulous tree!

I cut out the pieces and found a gold snowflake on one of the gold prints that made a fabulous tree topper.  I had to use a really, really tiny blanket stitch to stitch around that snowflake, but it worked beautifully.

For the quilting I decided to stitch around all the leaves on the tree and then do a random feather all over the background fabric.

Here's the back.  It was so much fun to make and I can't wait to put it on my table for Christmas!

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. Was there, per chance, a die cutter involved in this project?? I really like how the quilting is understated and echoes the applique. I do believe I need to do one of these!!!!!!!!! Your fabrics are perfect!!!!!

    1. I think Accuquilt has a similar one, but this was from a little tree I ripped out of something sometime and had hanging on my design board.

  2. Great job. The design is really sweet.

  3. Awesome design! I love the way the shapes of the tree pieces are the same kinds of shapes in quilted feathers. Super cute!

  4. Absolutely love this table runner! The tree makes me feel happy!!

  5. Beautiful! It makes a lovely table runner.

  6. The tree is so sweet, and your quilting is lovely.

  7. Hi Suzy, I really love your runner. The quilting is perfect for it.

  8. I really like the stylized tree, nice job!

  9. Such a neat looking tree. Love you you quilted it.
