More Modern Trees Inspiration

While we are in between tutorials for my Modern Trees Quilt Along, I thought I would share some more fabulous WIP’s from Flickr. I’m very pleased to see how everyone’s really taking my pattern and making it their own. That makes me happy. πŸ™‚

Mara C. (aka Simon Says Sew on flikr) is working on several versions including the two below. I love how she added a cute tree fabric for borders and made a table runner with some leftover blocks from another version.

I love how desertskyquilts used a green background for her trees rather than cream. You can personalize this design however you like!

Green Background

Use any background color you like! From desertskyquilts on flickr.

Carolyn (aka sweetboaterchick) chose a completely different layout, offsetting her rows of trees. Isn’t it fantastic?

And who says they all have to line up? Make a forest of trees if you like, just like A. G. Lindsay did. (I was hoping someone would choose this layout!)

Want to make it bigger than my sample? Just add more rows and borders like Jody K. from New Jersey did.

Extra Rows

Make it bigger with more rows and borders. Made by Jody K.

Or add a touch of whimsy with fun pieced borders, like Lindsey from Inspiring Creations.

I’m telling you, this is just a drop in the bucket of all the awesomeness that is being shared in my quilt along flickr group. Join the fun by posting your QAL WIP’s (say what?) or browse everyone else’s for some virtual inspiration. It’s never to late to start this project on your own schedule, sewing at your own pace.

I’ve started quilting my trees and can’t wait to share the machine quilting process with you next week! Yes, you really can quilt your own quilts. πŸ™‚

    It is so much fun to see what different people did with their quilts. I’m looking forward, with trepidation, to trying to quilt mine in November!
