I finally pulled my machine out of the basement and did some sewing on our dining room table last night. I'm a month behind on our solid quilting bee, so that was first on the list. Modern tree blocks for Corley, just in time for spring.
I wish I could remember where I saw this technique first...it popped into my head immediately when I found out we were making trees.
It is actually a reverse applique of sorts.
I just tried to explain the process, but I think I'll have to do a tutorial. It isn't complicated, but I'm a visual person, so I'll get some step by step photos. Or I'll just keep searching for the original inspiration/instructions. We're over the hump - happy Wednesday!
