Feeling like fall

November is Lee's month in the Sew Beautiful Bee, and she requested tree blocks. She sent us some beautiful fallish fabrics and Essex Linen.
Tree for Lee!
Here's my block. I ripped off borrowed the idea from this block by Eleven Stitches.



The half-square triangles finished at 1.5 inches. Have I mentioned I love using a coin to show scale? Happy fall!

it is so great katie. love the colors... and your piecing is amazing. there are few things more satisfying than perfectly pieced points. love them. and, it is amazing how much easier they are to achieve with a 1/4" quilting foot. ;)

I didn't realize those HSTs were so tiny! Love it! Did you use Thangles or do it the good old fashioned way?

So cool!!!! I love this block! I'm with Lee - did you use Thangles? I'm so going to have to try those things one of these days...

Kati said...

I love this! It's perfect. I was actually thinking of doing something similar. It might be back to the drawing board.
