So have you seen the new Quilt-A-Long that Christa from Christa Quilts is hosting. It is called Modern Trees and it is such a fun pattern. This is the particular variation that I love :) I just think those scrappy improv trees are so fun!!! Christa does such a great job with her Quilt-A-Long's and has wonderful step by step instructions along the way. Pop on over and check out all the details ;)
Now sadly, I don't have time to join this particular Quilt-A-Long. But I really want to have this quilt for Christmas, so I decided to call on the help of my trusty Bee Mates from the Bees Knees group :) My plan is to add 2more rows, one of 6 tress and then one more row with just one tree to represent the trunk :) Yippee Skippee!!! October is my month and the timing could not be more perfect. I whipped out my Blitzen fat eighth pack that I have been saving for just such an occasion and got to cutting. Oh, I just love these prints, I am so excited!!!
I cut some white and brown for the background and trees and got them all bagged up. Now I just need to print off the paper pieced pattern I made (I didn't want everyone to have to buy the ruler for just 2 trees) and address some envelopes and they will be ready to pop in the mail.
That's my goal for the day ;) I am just so excited about this project. Each tree that comes back will be it's own special design and I just can't wait to see them all come together ;)
Have a Happy Quilting Day!!
