Under the Tree

The batik used in the center of this quilt was a lone square of fabric which I didn’t want to cut up.  I felt lucky that it had the nice scene featured.  I noticed I had just enough of the border print I used for the inner frame.
The quilt is machine pieced and quilted.  It measures  9 7/8 in X 9 5/8 in. 
Here you can see how I used dark green thread to make the metallic tree and figures stand out even more.
The outer border fabric is a black print which looks gray/black but photographs blue/black.
The back has a sleeve for hanging.
