Tree Everlasting


Just to show you that I've been working on this, here's a couple of pictures.

I am piecing in sections...adding a few trees as I go...and then moving on to another section. When all the words are put together, I'll have to make more trees to fill in the spaces between the phrases. I plan to stagger the trees rather than set them in straight rows, and of course, that means the piecing will be more complicated. I am having fun though! I'm rummaging through my large basket of fabric "strings" for more beige fabrics to use in the skinny spaces between letters. More variety, you know. (I hope the background isn't too busy!)

Looks great! I like the roof on the M.

Your words and trees are one of the projects that inspired me to join the summer class! It is so great to see what's happening with them. They look great! I love the off-kilter trees. Cool!

I know how crazy staggered piecing can get, but if that's the vision you have, it will be fun to see it come to fruition! I'll send you lots of positive piecing power! Good luck.

such adorable trees. I love how tiny they are so that the focus is still on the words. I've said it before, but that M is just adorable. The background is definitely NOT too busy - it looks great. you're doing a fabulous job!

I too love the trees, and the roof over the M.
