Winter Tree by Trish Walstad, 2013

"This quilt was designed for a Boston Modern Quilt Guild challenge. The challenge required the use of the colors grey, soft white, black, red, and powder blue.

Trees inspire me. Trees are everywhere I look. They surround my house. They fill my neighborhood. They cover much of my state. The structure and the shape of trees fascinate me. I was compelled by the colors of the challenge to create a tree.

For this quilt, I worked directly on my design wall from a sketch I drew on graph paper. I constructed this quilt piece by piece from the bottom to the top."
