When I started this challenge I assumed I'd be making a larger sized quilt, maybe lap size. I was piecing the sections with that in mind. For some reason I wanted to see what they looked like cut smaller. So I did.
I also chose a background fabric. My husband used to tell me how birch trees lighten the forest, especially at night. I chose the darkest gray kona that I had in my stash. I think I'm going to call this quilt, 'Night Forest.' So I started cutting and piecing into the background.
I cut up some of the sections and rearranged a bit, and adding in a few touches here and there. Using the sliced up trees of one section makes most of the trees look the same. I didn't want that. I'm continuing to piece sections, slice them up and make trees. I'm thinking this may end up being a long, horizontal piece for the wall. So far, I'm so happy with it. I still want to make a larger quilt with these techniques and this theme...I'm learning so much about how to make the trees look like I want them to.
One more finish to report. Four pillows for my son. I love the rounded corners on these. Remember, this is the LAST weekend of the spring to finish challenge. The challenge ends midnight on Monday. We'll all report in on Tuesday! Get busy! Time is running out.
