Having looked at her samples of trees we could trace I drew my own on the spot.( many of hers were Australian trees. )
This is my layout. I am still fiddling with it and embroidering the circular shapes - using some of the many stitches available on my Bernina. These are sewn with a reinforcing fabric behind and can be discarded if the aren't right. One only so far has ended in the bin. That is brilliant advice because if you were sewing the decoration on the shapes already attached to the trees you could not discard them. So this is still a work in progress.
Here are some of the other pupils efforts.
My namesake was the fastest worker - her's is ready to quilt.Well done A.
