I enjoyed making this quilt due to the many varied patterns in each “branch” of the tree. I liked the idea of mixing appliqué with traditional blocks.  While I did use some of the suggested materials developed by Edyta Sitar for her pattern, “Tannenbaum”, I was also able to pull other fabrics from my stash.  Judy Johnson was able to set the long arm pattern so the birds frame the star and base as well as perch in the tree.
