Tree House Quilt Progress

This is the quilt that I have been hinting about being close to finished. I just need to hand tie and bind. You may remember that for my month in Common Threads Quilt Bee I asked for tree houses, and boy did everyone deliver. Some of the most clever blocks I have ever seen!

Tree House Quilt Progress

Anyway, the overall quilt design is a large tree with branches and the tree houses are on the branches. I choose to hand tie since there is some very lovely embroidery stitching in some blocks and I wanted that to stand out. Hopefully by the end of the week I will have her ready for a full display.
