Trees and Quarter Squares for Quilty Fun

Time for a Quilty Fun Sew Along update...

I had sew much fun making the lollipop trees last week!
Choosing fabrics was easy this time.
I only needed 3 main prints for trees.

{Since I live in Pennsylvania, I decided to make my trees 
in green, red, and yellow fabrics.}

I've been using a bit of black here and there,
to tie in all of the blocks,
and in this block, it made sweet tree trunks.

{The black gingham print is from Sweetwater's Mama Said Sew! line.}

This week's Quilty Fun Sew Along block
was Quarter Squares,
made oh-so-scrappy with 20 different fabrics!

When I was finished stitching the little squares,
I just had to put them into my dishes,
to show you how yummy they were!

Even though I used my 50 wt Aurafil thread
for piecing these little cuties,
my blocks came out a bit smaller than expected.
Thankfully, though, they were still oversized
enough to allow for trimming to the final 2 1/2" size.

I put them together as randomly as possible...

I really like making lots of blocks,
assembly-line fashion.
It takes almost no time!

They play together so nicely, don't they?

and now they are waiting patiently
for the rest of the Quilty Fun blocks to be sewn.

This sew along is making me happy in 2014!

Don't forget...
we're taking signups for the Skinny Pinny Pincushion Swap
through the end of January.
Details here...just email me to register!
