We each kept the piece of our tree that was the bottom left corner. We put the other three pieces in bags with our name and the part number, so the receiver knew who they were from. At our meeting we randomly received the other three parts of our tree from three different people. My pieces are from Sally Neckvatel (upper left), Leah Doherty (upper right), and Sue Kelly (lower right). Thank you to all three of you, they are beautiful.
Here is my original tree before I cut it apart.

I added a border, half spring, half fall, since that is what it appeared to me.

Now the fun begins, how to make it once again my tree. I decided it looked like a collision between two separate worlds. In fact I think I might call it that. "Two Worlds Collide"
fantasy and reality.

Now for the quilting and binding and sleeve and label and ....
