Tree's a poppin'...

After a sewing debacle yesterday that involved several hours of un-sewing 3 sections to get back to where I goofed, I have finally finished the tree blocks. So much for quick sewing! If you make one of these make sure to keep the parts in order...the right order! Not backwards order. You'll be sorry if you goof...I promise you! You can't just reshuffle the fabrics. *S*

Imagine another row on the bottom. Didn't quite fit on the design wall! Now off to sew the rows, then stop and rest for the night.

Wow Judy, those trees look just amazing, I just love the contrast, and the way they're pieced is sensational.

Your trees look wonderful. I have really enjoyed making this quilt too. I agree there are some tricks to making it and I didn't realize some of them till after I sewed a few blocks. I also decided to make my quilt bigger so need to make more blocks!
Yours are so perfect... lined up beautifully.
Lets just say I decided mine will be folk arty trees :)

Very cute quilt. That type of sewing is super fast if you don't make mistakes but if you do... Good for you getting it done.

Your trees are just gorgeous! I'm making them too....I've been ripping and cursing and hoping I have the trick of getting them right. It's not going into the ufo pile....nope, no way. :)

What cool trees and how neat that you could include them in your blog banner line!

Those sort of remind me of some I saw on Simply Quilts recently but they added white on half of the tree sections so it looks like snow on them--not sure now who the guest was since I was watching a pile of episodes as I sewed the other day.

This is such a cool pattern! So many people in blogland are making this quilt right now - just perfect for Christmas! So sorry you had a problem with it.
