Small Seasonal Quilts with Tree Embroidery
These small cute quilts can be hung on the wall, or used with table top stands. We embroidered designs from the Four Seasons Trees Set, which use the satin stitch technique. This means you can choose thread colors according to your project. You can also adjust the size of the quilts and colors of the background as you like.
The Early Summer Quilt is made in light green and blue hues. The finished size is 10 1/2" square.
