A sweet wallhanging made by Brooke Sellman that graced a wall of my Quilt Market booth last fall.

I love how her choice of small strips of fabrics echo the stack of books hanging from the tree branch. Brooke used a variety of fabrics from my Quiet Time collection, along with Gem (for the binding) and Budding from Helen’s Garden. I deliberately coloured these two collections to co-ordinate well together, so as to give you sewers out there many options of pattern combinations.

Brooke has graciously written a tutorial for this piece. Head on over to her blog to see how she so expertly managed to keep those tree trunks intact with all that cutting, and to get an insight into her choice of quilting motif.

    This is amazing! Thank you for posting! I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out what I can make from your wonderful fabrics, since I’d look silly in a ruffled princess pea dress 😀

      Brooke is full of good ideas, Coby. She will be posting another next week. Oh … and I have a garment idea I will be posting about shortly that may be more palatable to you as well.
