Christmas Tree Quilt Block

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!
