Christmas Quilt Show Entry - Oh, Christmas Tree!!

This Christmas wall hanging is a modified version of a quilt from a magazine last Christmas. I usually change the patterns of the things I make. The fabrics in this quilt are just ones I chose from my stash. I tried to get different shade of each color. I also tried to choose a dull version of the color. I was pleased with my fabric choices.
I did ditch stitching around the trees. I also quilted down both sides of the piano keys.
I did a loopy loop background pattern. I think it looks like snow.




If you click on this picture to make larger, you can see a sprig of holly.

The back shows off the quilting better.

As always a label.

I would love you to vote for mine.
