 No better time then the present to start a new piece.  This one is smaller, approximately 20"X26".
The background is quilted first.  I do not want the background to be too complicated in this piece so kept it a whole cloth.
 The beginning with what goes on first I begin my tree top.  This is a log needle pine with a lot of brown needles. Since the needles overlap depending on the branch they are on I have to keep thinking as I quilt them on.

This is as far as I can go before adding more branches further down.   I am happy with it so far...the background faded out a bit in these two photos...it is more like the top one so there is good contrast between the tree and the background.
