I made a few of these at the beginning of the month. I wanted to post them for one of the Iron Craft challenges but I was afraid the people I was giving them to would see them.
The original pattern called for a smaller border around and the tree ended up touching the sides. (See picture below). I did not like that so I made the border a bit bigger. Other than that it was an extremely fun tree to put together. This is my first time with an applique pattern and really I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.
