Today is the start of our "In the Garden" BOM. Welcome to all who will be doing this along with me.
"Trees". Every garden has trees. Big, small, tall, short, pretty, even ugly and so on...
You can make your trees just as you wish. The fabrics you choose are really up to you. I've decided to go with summer colours and for the background a soft green with tiny dots. The fabric is called "Cat's Meow" by Cheryl Haynes at Bernatex. I purchased about 2m of the fabric - only because the shop said it was the last they had. It's hard to tell you how much you will need, because I love to use up scraps from my stash and have a single background for all my blocks.
The first "Trees" block is divided up into 6 trees that can be put together individually and be sewn together to form one block of 12" (30cm), or you can keep the 6 small blocks one side and have them to fill the corners and so on when we are putting our quilt together. It's up to you individually.
Photos will not work with me today, but have no fear, the idea is there and I'll get someone to help me later.
I put mine together and then thought I would keep them as half blocks til later.
The second block of "Trees" is a single block of 12" (30cm) and is suitable for a beginner to have a go.
All patterns for the Trees 1 & 2 are in my Craftsy Shop.
I'm adding a "Link-Up" button to the bottom of this post. Please link a photo of your block for all to see and ooooh and aaaaah over. Thanks.
