These two trees are actually intertwined and sewn down, representing the blended nature of a second-marriage family. The five red fallen berries represent the children that are part of the marriage; there are many more berries on the tree. Included in the quilting design is a musical note and a pair of scissors, representing the professions of the recipients. Machine pieced, hand appliqued and quilted. (Wallace Collection)
