birch trees finish

I started this quilt as part of the rainbow scrap challenge in 2018. I made blocks according to the rainbow color of the month. By year end, I had all the blocks finished. I made string blocks, and, sliced them for the "tree" part of the block. By following the scrap challenge, it was never overwhelming to work on it.


It is about 68 x 80. I used a green sheet for the backing.



I have this quilt on my May one monthly goal and my PHD 2020.

  1. I have this pattern, and it has actually made its way onto my cutting table, which means I may start it in the somewhere not-so-distant future. Hopefully! Because yours is so pretty! It encourages me to just start piecing!

  3. Wow! I too have been making fabric for birch trees. I purchased a pattern called Colorful Birches from Amanda Jean Nyberg. It looks very similar.
