I wish I could find the actual pattern. There is just a picture of it online, but no pattern.

Maybe take the easy route and do HST's rather than the diamond shapes. It's likely strip pieced and cut at an angle. Although not too difficult, it would be harder than my idea of just fooling around with something. Better stick to my real deadlines.

I just knew I'd seen that pattern somewhere, Luvs. 'The Collector's Dictionary of Quilt Names and Patterns', published in 1980 by Yvonne M. Khin. No pattern with it but she collected and made crude drawings from about every quilt book published up to that time and included where she found them.

I've had that book, 'The Standard Book of Quilt Making and Collecting' by Marguerite Ickis, published in 1949, for 40 years. Well, there it is, page 43, Live Oak Tree. Now to figure out how to make it.

I'm starting with 1 1/2 inch strips, cut across at a 45 degree angle. See my album for the layout. When you come to the 5 strip, the last one needs to be wider, else there is a seam allowance problem.

Still working on the triangles and tree trunk.

Forbidden Fruit is also on that page but it uses three diamonds instead of 5.

How do you know I'm having a fun day? Very Happy

Have fun, Anita. Grandson time is too precious to waste.

I've got four blocks done and am going to mess around with Live Oak till I can make it.

Then the trick is telling ya'll how, the real challenge.

Gimpy, I've got Ruby McKim's book, 101 Patchwork Patterns as well. They were my only sources for awhile.

Laid out. Seams have to go opposite directions.

Sewn and trimmed. That big piece will stay until time to sew five together. Do I really want to make four more of these stinkers? Freezer paper to work out the rest of the blocks.

Basically, sew 1 1/2 inch strips together. 5, 4, 3, 2 together. Cut across at 45 degree angle, 1 1/2 inch. Add a bigger block to the 5 strip and 1 is a rectangle. Check which direction the seams are going and carefully press any ironed the wrong way. On this, I might starch the fabrics.

Trim across the wide end. Repeat, 4 more times. Working on the background and tree trunks.

This is stirring up my brain. How is it that there is no protractor in my house? After all, my craft supplies were used by a generation for school projects. Can I draw a 135 degree angle with a compass and ruler?

DD's high school sponsored a day where the parents could take their kids place for a day. Her best friend's mother and I decided to do it. In math they gave us a graphing calculator and a problem to solve. Neither of us had ever seen a graphing calculator. But we solved the problem in about 30 seconds and proceeded to play with Fermat's Enigma. The teacher finally threw up his hands and declared, "At least now I know where they got it from." Did you know that if you enter a fractional value for n you get.....well, never mind. It looks something like a sweetgum seed ball.

I sew a little bigger, then trim. The upper corner background is a 6 inch square cut in diagonal.

Anita and Redmadder, I just came across these pics of completed BOM quilts from back in 2005 that were on a lady's website, the tree blocks are awesome. I wonder if you could draft/create something like this for your quilts

Tree blocks

The first thing of my list is the 365 challenge, then the trees. Love the ones we've done so far.

When I look at your blocks, I keep thinking of a guild sister who got her trees on point quilt all quilted, only to discover that one was 90 degrees off. She drew in a stump, and an axe with feet sticking out from under the tree. She labeled the quilt, " Where is Roger?" (her very accident prone DH) Roger did not get the joke but the whole guild did.

Anita, I tucked my tree blocks away when leaving for DD's. Now they must be hiding with February's Phd. Could you post a photo of Washington's Elm from the calendar?
