A Tree or Two or More

I wanted some trees for my Holiday wall hanging. These greens were the most Christmas-y dark greens I could find that would work. I liked this WOW because some of the circles had sparkly silver in them. Gotta have some sparkle on a Holiday quilt.

Rectangles, triangles, trees. Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy.

And a box with some half square triangles to suggest a bow. Certainly not rocket science.

The lighting is SO CRAPPY there, this really looks ugly. It certainly needs more stuff. (And the trees need trunks, but they haven't even been trimmed yet!)

This is the plan in my sketchbook.  It'll get there. I can already hear my friend Julie saying, "I'm not worried. I know you'll be able to pull it off."

Looking at the sketch now, I like the asymmetry, particularly the boxes at the bottom. I'm going to have to make sure to keep that.

Don't you love sewing from your stash? And working from a quick sketch. I'm enjoying watching this come together.
