Ideas for decorating and embellishing your bare tree.
One or two of these little bonsai trees will look cute on your Grandma Hattie shelf quilt. Make each one a little differently. Here are some ideas:
Look through your fabrics for a print with large leaves or flower patterns. I found a bark cloth print that I thought would look fun as the top of a bonsai tree. I also show a possible Hoffman leaf pattern.

An appliqué made by cutting out the leaf
images from the bark cloth.
Applique small round circles of various
green fabrics - or make small yo-yo's
for leaf effects.
