This listing is for a custom-made version of my Winter Tree. I designed the original quilt during a week of skiing at Falls Creek, and have developed a series of seasonal trees. You may choose to have your quilt made almost identical to this one, with variations of YOUR choosing, or a different season. Please contact me prior to purchasing if you have any questions, or to discuss personalising options. You'll need to allow several weeks for your quilt to be made, and there is sometimes a bit of a wait on custom pieces, so please check with me about the timeframe.

I also make more elaborate, larger tree quilts, with many more details and customisable options, such as these:

Description is of original. The quilt measures 19.5 x 22.5in and has a hanging sleeve attached, ready for you to hang. It is squared and hangs flat.

The top and backing are made from top quality quilters' cottons, and I've used Matilda's Own wool/cotton batting. The piecing, applique and quilting are done with a combination of 100% cotton, embroidery threads and super-fine quilting poly. The applique is fused and carefully stitched with machine blanket stitch in matching thread, and I have quilted closely around all the applique in matching threads to further define the shapes.

The background is heavily quilted in matching thread. It represents swirling snow, and I've called the style Emming; my personalised version of McTavishing. Depending on the lighting, the quilting can be a major feature, or be almost unnoticeable. Every single one of the nearly 150 thread-ends from the applique and quilting have been hand-tied and buried in the quilting for neatness and durability. The binding is continuous with neatly mitred corners and invisibly hand-stitched down at the back.

I take great pride in my work, all the way through from the initial design to the finishing touches. Being an art quilt, I don't recommend you put this through the wash, but spot cleaning is quite safe with a gentle detergent if required. Of course, testing on the back first is always a good idea. Dry the quilt flat in the shade. Keep your quilt art out of direct sunlight to retain the vivid colours.

The quilt comes from a completely smoke-free environment and has been kept away from pets.
