My March OMG is to work on a friendship row by row quilt from 1999.
Don’t have a clue why I took the pic at this angle!
Since the rows are uneven lengths, I decided to piece tree blocks to both ends of each row.
I used my EQ7 program to come up with a plan and the sizes of the tree blocks.
The rows won’t necessarily be pieced in this order; I just needed a plan to make them all the same width.
I’ve printed out the patterns for the tree blocks, and I’ve paper-pieced three blocks so far.
It has been a long time since I’ve paper pieced anything. Some unsewing has happened.
This is going to take a while. Maybe the rest of the month!
Meantime, I’ve been playing around with border ideas. I think I am going to piece four patches.
A lot of four patches.
Probably another month’s worth.
Ignore the colors in the above settings. The colors have nothing to do with the plan.
And I know that the trees are not symmetrical. I don’t care. They aren’t symmetrical in nature, either.
