Trees for Sale!

The pattern of the day around here today is Trees for Sale (43242) by Pieces from My Heart. It’s a freezer paper piecing pattern that is so simple to use with a pre-cut layer cake fabric set. If you’re really adventurous you could use scraps, just making sure that your pieces are at least 10″ x 10″ each.

It’s difficult to show you exactly how easy this pattern is without giving away all of it’s secrets, but, here’s just a little hint.

The pattern really simplifies the cutting and piecing process, making the whole project quick and relatively simple. And since all of the seams within the block are floating, there’s no matching seams! Each block is pieced and then cut to size. Easy peasy!

We have three projects in the store right now. One still being pieced, made with Nature’s Christmas Fabric Pack  (A23215):

version 1

One finished quilt top, made with Christmas Countdown Fabrics:

And one completed quilt, made using the Holiday in the Pines Fabric Pack (A21176).

I also love the backing on that last one

We have so many layer cakes to choose from, you can easily make your quilt reflect your own or a loved one’s tastes.

I hope you’ll try it and send us a picture when you’ve finished! If you’d like to work with a group and you’re local you can join our class at the store starting December 3rd, running for two weeks, 6:30-9pm. Maybe I’ll see you there!
