Block #1 for Jaime

For Jaime, originally uploaded by nkiblueeyes.

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!
