Bring Home the Perfect Tree by Constance Clark

 Constance Clark won a Third Place ribbon in the Applique - Small category for this quilt, titled Bring Home the Perfect Tree.  About the name, she says, "My husband spent high school and college summers trimming Christmas trees.  The Bringing Home the Tree pattern [from Buttermilk Basin] evokes cold memories of our searches for the perfect tree."

 In the photo above, the "perfect tree" is carted home in a vintage red truck, and is even accompanied by a wrapped present.  The truck has a wreath on its door.  The cool background color brings to mind snow, and it's not surprising to see appliqued snowflakes falling from the sky!

This little snowman has his own block!  He is embellished with tiny buttons and embroidery stitches.  This close up photo shows Constance Clark's excellent wool applique, embroidery, blanket stitch, and quilting skills ! (She quilted this piece herself).
