Ok gals (and maybe a few guys). I am totally blown away by what you all are doing with your Modern Trees Quilt Along. I feel like I’ve lit a spark of creativity and you are turning it into a full-blown bonfire of inspiration. Yeah, maybe I’m not so good with the metaphors, but the blocks are really amazing to me.
Here are just few pics I pulled from my flickr group:
Check out this fun block that Melissa over at Happy Quilting came up with.
It’s actually a different size, but is a good alternative for those who may want to make a bigger block, or who don’t have the tri-recs ruler used to make my version. Melissa’s block measures 10″ x 10″ finished and is paper pieced. She’s posted a blog tutorial on how to make it.
I’m thinking how fun it would be to combine larger and smaller blocks in the same quilt. Remember, this is your quilt so feel free to adapt it, innovate and truly make it your own!
The next Modern Trees QAL Tutorial will be posted next week.
