Project Quilting 2015 challenge 1: trees

It's that time of the year!  Project quilting is here!  Persimondreams is again sponsoring this fun season of inspiring quilting. 

I'm deep in UFOs but just need to be innovative and create some freestyle quilting!  I spent today sewing for me, for fun, and to just sew!  

Title: Rainbow Forrest
Size: 32" x 32"
Pattern: original by Me
Quilted:  by me
Fabrics: top-scrap stash.  back-Heather Ross Pin People

my inspirations:
My friend Cora Quilts beautiful Rainbow log cabin top she just finished.
The scrappy log cabin QAL.
Recent sorting and organizing by color.
And of course trees.  Pine trees and log cabins.  
A dream of mine to someday live in one in the mountains.

I straight line quilted the log cabin blocks.  And did some dense pebble like quilting-i was thinking snowballs.

Another quilt for my living room wall.  I know have three-and they are all from challenges!

this one was from a Project Quilting 2014 challenge last year-Candy Dreams. 
 Title: Red Wax lips and Pixie Stix, Rock Candy Dreams

And this one was the Mihael Miller 2014 fabric challenge.
title:  Let it Go, Sew!

keep dreaming...Colleen
Sofia and I have been snuggled up against the cold this week.

great job -- I hate I missed the link up this time cause my tree was finished but I've been sick most of the weekend.
