This is my entry, "When life gives you scraps"

It is 15 x 19.5 inches. All wall hangings are in the shape of a house.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I love the colors and all the texture. You do such beautiful work.

If I may ask, how are the tree branches appliqued? I am really wanting to do a quilt with an appliqued tree and I can't figure out a way to do the tree branches. They would be too narrow to needle turn or blanket stitch. My step daughter had a tattoo of a bare tree with a heart at the base. She passed away in November and I would love to make a wall hanging for my husband.

The branches are raw edge applique. I use Wonderunder light. I did put a blanket stitch around all edges. It's a bean blanket stitch. It goes forward, backwards, forward, bites into the fabric once then does the three stitches on top of each other again. Completely covers the raw edge. I use batiks for applique because I don't like the white edge of regular fabric showing.
