Buffalo Plaid Trees

My friend Kay recently made a stunning tree quilt. The pieced white, gray and black fabric squares emulate trendy buffalo plaids. Since the patchwork blocks are quite large, only nine are needed for the throw sized quilt. The pattern is “Farmhouse Christmas” by Kristina Brinkerhoff for Center Street Quilts. Isn’t the backing fabric perfect for this quilt? Click here to see the whole quilt and/or purchase a pattern.

When Kay brought her quilt top to me for quilting, we hemmed and hawed for awhile over thread color and pantograph design. I showed her all my Christmas pantos and a few textured designs, and, one by one, she eliminated those that did not speak to her. We finally settled on a medium dark gray polyester (Magnifico) thread and the “Winter White” pantograph of snowflakes distributed by patternman.com.

We are both pleased as punch with the results!

  1. I love those big trees. Kay did such a nice job piecing and you did well with the snowflakes finishing. Can’t wait to see y’all in person again one of these days.
