The quilt uses scrap material for the leaves. The tree trunk and branches are created using a curvy stitch. Interfacing is used to stiffen the tree trunk. This will also prevent the fabric from bunching up when the is washed.
After the trunk and branches were finished, the process of adding the leaves began. As mentioned earlier, the leaves were made from scrap material. The blanket stitch was used to add the leaves. Below is a picture of the completed center section of the quilt.
