Ode to a tree: O Tannenbaum

We're celebrating 12 days of Christmas tree quilts !  Today's headliner is "O Tannenbaum" by quilting superstar, Ricky Tims.

The tree branches are represented by simple strips of green which are set against a snowy white background,  creating a visual representation of the lyrics of O Tannenbaum :

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your branches green delight us.
They are green when summer days are bright;
They are green when winter snow is white.

Ricky Tims began designing and making quilts in 1991, and he has been recognized as one of "The Thirty Most Distinguished Quilters in the World", among other honors.  He is known in the international world of quilting as an enthusiastic and encouraging teacher, an award-winning quilter, and a talented and spellbinding speaker. The pattern for O Tannenbaum can be obtained at Ricky Tims' website:
