Christmas in July Quilt Along Step 1
at 10 1/2 by 10 1/2.
For every 3 green squares you need 3 backgrounds-sorry I only have one pictured. This will make 3 blocks with similar but not identical trees.
NOTE: they do not need to be equal thirds-the wonkier the better!
NOTE: cut each so that the bottom is wider than the top of the section below it so that your trees aren't just triangles.
I take this stack (the one on the left) and recut the pieces into usable squares. 2 to 2 1/2 inches for later projects.
First you need to rearrange the greens so that you have 3 different greens for each block-but make sure you keep the backgrounds the same!
AND that is where my camera batteries died and now that I have new batteries, I am out of time so, I will post pictures of the finished tree blocks as soon as I get back from daughter's piano lesson.
You need 18 trees blocks for the 70 X 70 lap quilt.
