Growing a Little Forest

I have been slowly working on making this Lovely Little Forest Quilt from The Purl Bee. I think they offer the most adorable projects!

The project calls for 25 tree blocks, cut to 3.5 inches wide by 4 inches tall. Then you arrange the trees with 15 plain blocks of the same size. The sample shows light green trees at the top and darker green trees at the bottom. I’m planning to do a simple, random arrangement. I ended up cutting way more pieces than I needed, so I decided to make two of these quilts at the same time, one for our house and one for a gift.

Since I’m not in a rush to finish this, I don’t know if I’ll have it done in time for Christmas, but I’m okay with that. It’s just nice to have a no-pressure Christmas project to be working on in between all the other things going on these days.
