O Tannenbaum by Ricky Tims

In 2001 I was hankering to create a large wall quilt that had a seasonal feel to it. My criteria revolved around simplicity and speed. The idea of using large long strips came to mind - as well as my love for slicing and dicing - rearranging. O Tannenaum was the result. I also thought about the option that this could be THE tree for the home, in spaces where a tree might take up too much floor space. I can see it now…the quilt hung on the wall and a little hoard of gifts tucked along the bottom.

Don’t you just love finding hidden surprises in quilts? This quilt has a couple of fun secrets that will make you smile. Quilted under the tree are Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls left of the trunk, and a toy train is quilted to the right side of the trunk. Be sure to take a look at the close ups.

O Tannenbaum was my first holiday pattern. It is currently under revision and should be a hit for the 2021 season.
