I’m participating in Tonya’s summer class but the plan was to wait until the move was done to start after all it’s just MARCH! My quilt will be made up of freeform pieced trees in autumn colors so I decided to pull the fabrics and put them aside so I can find them when we move – that way I can work on the quilt while I’m unpacking.
So first I pull an autumn print to use as a guide to pull fabrics for the trees.
Then I decide I have to just try one or rather two because I decided I’ll cut two at a time from squares or rectangles. (Nope, didn’t even iron that green square first!)
After piecing the first one (on the right) I realized I needed to cut down my tree a little before piecing the sides so I won’t lose my points in the seam allowances.
Then I had to make another set of two just for fun. As I go along, I’ll try different trees too.
