The Stitching Tree


High on a hill in the center of Spellcaster’s Garden, is the Stitching Tree. Witches come from far and near to sit under the tree and embroidery together. It’s said that it has magical powers that greatly improve things like Bullion stitches… but the truth is, it’s just fun to sit in its shade together and visit while we stitch! This pattern was designed to match the tree print in the Spellcaster’s Garden fabric line, and it mimics Scherenschnitte. The pattern is for hand embroidery with colored pencil tinting, and simple piecing.

Quilt measures 38 1/2” x 34 1/2"
