This one has orange shot cotton along with some more Lizzy House fabric. Love these. They look paper pieced, but they're much easier than paper piecing. Improvish. Merry Christmas, everyone!
Next up will be Andrea. See you in January!

So today I went to Bernina and worked on these fun improvish Christmas trees for Jaime. She gave us the green & I used some of my Lizzy House fabric along with some shot cotton (next photo).
A little advice: For the tinsel, 1 inch strips were a good size. Anything much bigger seems too big. Also, when you start chopping to put the tinsel in, just do one string of tinsel at a time. Otherwise, you'll have a hard time figuring out how to put it back together. Jaime says we can leave these untrimmed. Mine wasn't quite 12 inches, but she said it was no big deal.
I love these so much. I decided to make myself a quilt of these, too. Will be a project I can do with my scraps. I can't wait to get started.
Thanks for the fun blocks, Jaime!

I look forward to working on Jamie's Tinsel Trees next! ....
Merry Christmas to All, and to all a good-night!
