You'll have to use your imagination a little--when these are on twin-size beds, the tree will be on top of the mattress, with the white borders hanging off the sides. The top can be folded down so you can see the backing fabric.
We used a cream Moda Bella solid for the background. You can't really tell here, but the tree trunk is a fun print from Sanctuary. The leaves--all scraps and a few samples that my friend gave me. I appliquéd the leaves and did an all-over stippling (in cream).
A few process notes--this was a challenge for me, and there was definitely some
I didn't want any raw edges, so I used this appliqué method. Then I attached the leaves to the quilt using Heat N Bond Lite before stitching them down with invisible thread (as suggested by Linz!). I sewed around the perimeter of each leaf and a "vein" down the middle.
My friend chose these great Kumari Garden prints for the backing. Have you seen this line? I hadn't before this project. Love it.
Both quilts were bound using Kona Chartreuse.
Overall, I think they turned out pretty well! I'm glad to add these to my dunzo list.
(if you're wondering why I keep saying "dunzo," blame Tom Haverford. I'm not using it correctly, but I don't care, because Aziz Ansari is the funniest man on TV.)
