Lately, I've been obsessed with all things "tree ring". I just can't seem to get enough; so much so, that I broke out my watercolors and adorned my buffet with a couple of framed specimens.
Even my iPhone can't escape my fascination. This tree ring wallpaper must have been made just for me.
This little bundle of pruning discards amuses me as well. I put a ribbon on it to keep it together.
Needless to say, when I saw this tree ring quilt fabric in my local shop, I just had to have it. Once I had it, then I had to use it right away. I could use another wristlet, one appropriate for autumn, and this fit the bill.
I had on hand this great, persimmon colored zipper that I bought previously with no particular project in mind. It works well with the fabric and makes me think that it was just waiting to be used for something so good.
Making the tree ring quilting could not have been any easier. I started sewing in the center of a square quilt sandwich and just kept going around and around, getting progressively bigger rings. I didn't see a need to even try for precise ring spacing, the wonky look is just fine for me. Sounds like its time for a nice walk in the woods to see if I can scout out any more tree ring goodies!
