Playing with my blocks

I'm enjoying looking at all the blocks and and quilts in progress. Mine is far enough along that I'm beginning to thing about how they're going to go together. The last tree was pretty twisted looking and I thought I'd toss it out but after thinking more about it I'll probably use it anyway.

First I just laid the trees out in rows but decided they were were too orderly.

So I spaced them out some so they weren't all lined up and I like that better. I think I'll start in the top left corner and add background fabric to them one at a time and then try to fit them together as I go. Actually, looking at this photo - I think if I pull the bottom tree into the bottom right corner I'll have enough trees.

your trees are beautiful. I especially like the autumn colors. And don't worry about the wonky tree, I've seen wonkier trees in real life :-)

More, more! I think you need more of those cute little gems! They look more interesting with every picture.

That last tree is way fun :- )
I like the way you have them laid out in the picture too. Spacing them out makes it look more like a forest.
