The Sew Incredible Crazy and It's a Wild Life Block of the month blocks feature trees - two trees - a small tree and a tall tree. And just my luck, it was offered in two different manners - applique (not my choice) >>>
I was able to quickly piece the blocks and thought that I would skip the appliqued bunny and bird... I caved and am I ever so glad that I did!
How cute did they turn out???
Again, color placement is important... some of the light green HST at the edges of the tree are lost, but I am not overly concerned since it will be included in a quilt that I plan to keep - plus, it is scrappy. Rest assured, if it were a commissioned quilt, I would be ripping stitches and replacing them!
You may be tired of hearing that applique is not my thing... but in this case one of you will be a winner and reap the benefits of my dislike! I have a reverse applique pattern I am giving away. Yesterday was my birthday, but one of you gets a gift. How does that sound?
Leave a comment about which tree blocks you would have done - Applique or pieced
I will pick a random winner on Sunday afternoon.
