My Green Tree of Life

Hello, I am Katell, living near Toulouse in France.
I have always loved scrappy quilts and my new pleasure is to use selvedges. Of course I was totally influenced by Karen Griska and her book Quilts from the Selvage Edge.
In Winter I made a small star with an ice-blue sky :

Last week I celebrated Spring with My Green Tree of Life. It is an oversized classical bloc with the same easy half squares sewn with selvages. I call it green because of its main color, but also because all fabrics are reclycled !

Have a nice Spring time!

Katell, Quilteuse Forever
