Merry and bright! – 2017.12.02

I’m taking a short break from the commission art quilt I’m working on (which I can’t show yet, because it’s going to be a surprise) to make some fun tree blocks for this month’s VMQG block lotto.  The color scheme is modern bright prints with black & white prints.

The tutorial for constructing the tree blocks was written by Amy at Diary of a Quilter.  You can find the tutorial here.  This is a quick and easy block to make.

This was a great opportunity for me to use some of the bright modern fabrics I bought in the summer at Quilt Canada.  (One of the vendors had fat quarters on sale – 10 for the price of 9.  I took that as a personal challenge to see if I could find 10 that I liked – which of course I did.)   I’m always collecting black & white prints, and the brown trunks came from my scrap bin.

Here are my tree blocks:
