Pieceful Pines

Here’s a wall quilt that’s destined to become a holiday tradition. The dimensional tree boughs are quilted before the top edges are stitched into the seams of the background squares. Then they are decked with cheery red pom-poms. Fabrics are from the Once Upon a Christmas collection by Susan Winget for Benartex.
