Hi everyone, are you busy sewing holiday gifts and decor? If so, here is one more to add to your list!
To begin, cut 37 wedges in your background color and 36 in green. Cut 4 squares in your trunk fabric. Cut 3 WOF strips for the binding and cut 2 from the background fabric to piece the area around the tree trunks. Place the fabric on your design wall till you are happy with the arrangement. At this point, there are no strips cut for the area by the trunks.
Sew the wedges together from left to right until all three rows are complete. When you place your wedges with right sides together, they will not match up but rather extend 1/4" so that they meet at the seam line.
When the three rows are pieced, it's time to sew the rows together carefully pinning where the points should each match.
Once the trees are all assembled, it's time to square up the ends. Next measure to see how long your strips need to be to connect the tree trunks. This will depend on where you squared off and whether you decide to make your runner longer. To determine the length, measure from trunk to trunk and add a 1/2" for the seam allowance.
To finish, make a quilt sandwich, baste and quilt as desired. Use your precut binding strips to complete.
These cheerful patchwork trees could be used in so many different ways. Have fun! Happy Holidays.
