Looking at my quilt you are probably wondering where the tree is. And you're right. I definitely didn't use it in the traditional way. If you look at the image of the finished block below do you see those odd shaped white pieces to the left and right of the trunk of the tree? Those were the pieces that intrigued me because they were different. Not square, not triangular.
The next step was to get on my computer and draw this in Electric Quilt to figure out exactly what that looked like.
I considered this design for awhile, but decided against it.
Then I realized I could make a star!
Accuquilt requested that we give our quilt to someone who needed some Joy in their life. My friend him has been so helpful with teaching me to garden during the course of the pandemic and I wanted to bring Joy to her! She was thrilled!
