I really loved the idea for Kris's Snip.Sew.Send. blocks this month. All of the examples she put together in her flickr gallery are so fun. But I was a little worried because this kind of block is just so not my style (or so I thought) and rather out of my comfort zone.
I knew I wanted to make some trees (because every neighborhood could use trees!). But then I was stuck. Fortunately, the deadline loomed ever closer helping me to get off my duff and just do it.
These were so much fun to do!!! I actually ended up making 3 blocks (well, nearly 3... I ran out of background to frame out the tree blocks-- hopefully Kris won't mind finishing them up). I'm sorely tempted to keep the little house, I'm so happy with how it worked out.
Here's a close-up of one of the trees:
I think the little kitty may have spied a birdie up there!
Based on the blocks I've seen so far, this is going to be a really fun quilt. I can't wait to see how they all come together.
I hope you enjoy your blocks, Kris!
