Trees Up, Lights On

Yes, I have finally finished this quilt top. Yes just a top but I did add a different border to it. Wanted to use up some of the strips left over but didn't want to do it all the way around. Just had to be a little different.



Like Kim said when she was making hers, these blocks are addictive. So much so that she sent me another pattern by Pieces of Heart, called Chance of Flurries. Guess she figured I needed this as that is what we sometimes have. Just a chance for flurries.



She sent me some FQs for it also so I've been waiting to get the trees done so I could start on the next one. Spent the last two days preparing to cut. This is a much more complicated pattern but after making one it really goes together pretty easy. So one down and another start ed. Will just have to wait until I get a couple made to show them.

Not much else going on right now.Had a little ice storm yesterday and lost the cable and my broadband for about two hours in the afternoon but just took the opportunity to take a nap. Usually do that after supper is all over. So now I'll get back to sewing some snowflakes. Thanks for stopping by the porch.

Beautiful....this one keeps pulling at me...I think I could somehow incorporate it into a tree skirt...and then I wouldn't have to use an old bed sheet anymore :o)

I love your trees! These types of patterns are addicting. I've made several Buggy Barn Heart Crazy quilts and they're a lot of fun.

What a beautiful quilt. What was the name of the pattern again? I tried searching for it with the information you gave in the post, but I could not find anything. I would love to make this quilt!

HI Eileen,
I do love these trees- I loved them so much that I went to Sandy Gervais site and have ordered it as well as the other pattern that you were talking about- I will look forward to seeing yours made up...
Hope all is well and that you are keeping warm these days.
Regards,
Anna

I love it! Those trees are great. Where did you get the pattern for the trees or did you do that on your own?

I have that pattern but I don't know when I'll make it. I very much like your border treatment, it makes the quilt your own.
