The Tree Project.

So here's the deal:About 30 of my quilter friends accepted a tree challenge presented to us by Wanda Shelton. We all got a basic pattern with only a couple of guidelines as to where the trunk began and a couple of the branches started. When we finished our tree, we were instructed to divide the tree into four quarters, mark them as #1, #2, #3, #4. We got to keep the lower left quadrant and left the other three to be drawn by others for their piece.
The tire swings are made with toy tires from a motorcycle from the Dollar Tree and hung from the branches by a string of beads.
That's mine on the lower left.
Lower right is Judy Lewis'
Upper left is Edith Dalleska.
Upper right is Andrea Johnson.

So now I'm going to try to make the pieces relate to each other without changing the original quarter too much. Maybe a few leaves cast to other quarters or beads. As it is, the upper left quarter was a little short so I added a little piece and scattered a few clouds across the top.

So the above is a 45 second video - don't know if it will come out as a video but will try.
