My version of Temecula Quilt Company’s Tiny Tree is finished!
My last update was posted on December 20, 2019. I didn’t finish in time for Christmas, but I will have it displayed next Christmas.
Somehow, I managed to cut off the point of one side of the tree. So I made an executive decision to cut off the other side.
I am not telling anyone, so who is to know that this isn’t the way it is supposed to be?
In fact, it is just the way that it is supposed to be for me. And that is all that matters.
I like my tiny tree.
And I really like it embellished with a few buttons!
Quilt on! Forget about perfection, and celebrate your creativity!
I played with the Christmas Tree quilt block this week. I chose it from Nancy Martin’s Perpetual Calendar 365 Quilt Blocks A Year.
I easily drew the block from a 6 x 6 grid.
Here is how it looks set on point in a quilt design:
And here is what happens when the blocks are rotated:
I like it!
How about adding a group of friendly snowman:
The snowmen will look cute when they are embellished with thread and buttons!
I found the applique shapes in Electric Quilt’s library. I did alter them a bit, but EQ sure makes designing so much easier!
I need more contrast, but otherwise I’m happy with the designs.
Merry Christmas to you and your families!
The house is clean.
The Christmas tree is up!
The wild turkeys visit everyday.
And the rest of the week, or however long it takes, is dedicated to tedious paperwork. Ugh!
I’d rather be sewing.
