I still have to do mine. I am making good progress with UFOs so I think it will be done sooner rather than later.

2011! Older than I thought. Shocked

Golo, I went to look at yours and the pics are gone. Do you think you could repost them?

Very clever layout Tracey, uses all the blocks and I like the filler blocks centred like that, I also like your outer border, the white background really draws the blocks out so the centre isnt heavy, awesome!

So glad I wasnt the only one hoarding my trees and afraid to plant them in a quilt top!!! I really had fun putting them together

Ah, but that's what one does when one is young and foolish.

I'm so much more mature now.

Well, Missy, as a matter of fact, I do.
It's unusual, it's ridiculously easy, and everyone but Golo* would probably find it useful.










*Because it has to do with finishing, and Golo already finishes everything!

No way she will share, she needs to tease for a while first, draw it out, enjoy the machivellian chuckles and joy it brings her. She doesnt always wear that sassy red hat, sometimes she dons her black pointy one lmao lmao lmao

Ok I know a few people have finished their tree quilts bt I think they are in a different thread?????? Can we put the pictures here please. Makes it easier to find them. I am trying to put mine together and just wanted to see what everyone else did. I keep changing my mind, making this harder than it should be.

I noticed FB's quilt has 5 trees across the rows and 4 rows down so there are 20 tree blocks the top and bottom rows dont have filler blocks between the trees.

Ive used 15 blocks in mine and I have filler blocks between every tree, I used my extra blocks to make a pillow case to match the quilt. From what I can see flipping back through the topic, we had 17 swappers then someone must have needed to pull out leaving 16. I had an extra block Id made and I used it with Memaws block that is slightly smaller than the rest, she warned up to be careful and thats what I make my pillow case with



I will have to find it and measure to get dimensions for you

Yes, I have one short block but it is not Memaw's, her's matches. The other block is 2" shorter than should be so having a bit of trouble figuring out how to fix it. There are actually 18 blocks in FB's because she "framed" her center four blocks. I have been thinking about making extra blocks because a simple 4 across and 4 down makes it narrow and long. If I make 4 more blocks and have 5 across, I think I will like the proportions better.
I wish I could resist the urge to make everything more difficult. In the time I have spent trying to figure this out I could have made 4 more blocks and been done. Thud

I found Shemoos in her gallery.


And here is TexasMusicMoms. She did a straight layout instead of staggered which I didn't even think of....and now wish I hadn't....more ideas is not what I need! lol! I love that she decorated the trees which is still what I want to do.


And here is Linda's
