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:
