这个野生卡惊喜被艾米公主带给你（Ig：mummaMaMaum.）谁认为我们需要一个节日块来让我们忙碌在假期。我，对于一个人来说，不能同意她更多！她从艾米聪明的聪明抚摸着我来找我Diary of a Quilterfame. If you haven’t perused Amy Smart’s blog, it is full of inspiration, tutorials, and overall good cheer. I had the pleasure of meeting her this year at QuiltCon West, and she’s just a pocket full of sunshine.
Her Modern Christmas Tree Quilt Block is today’s Wild Card Surprise! It’s an easy block to make, but encourages a little bit of improv action from you. Do you think you can handle it? Oh, I know you can! What’s more, is that you make two blocks at the same time, so like that, you’re already winning. Plus, there are tutorials for two different sizes, and you only need to decide on two fabrics. (Unless of course you’re like me, who couldn’t decide so had to make more than just two!) This tutorial is yardage, fat quarter, layer cake, and large scrap friendly. Basically, you’ll find something in your fabric stash to make these blocks. And if not, well, you have my permission to get yourself to the fabric store and shop it up big time!
While this quilt block is called a Modern Christmas Tree Quilt block, it will also easily feature in your quilt as simply a row of trees, or a forest, or even just geometric shapes! The point being, don’t think you’re gonna have a Christmas themed quilt on your hands by making this block. Feel free to try it out in technicolour and see what happens. Holly and high waters, you could even just use the block to make some last minute gifts! If you decide to make this Modern Christmas Tree Quilt Block, consider using the below tags on social media. (It’s the social media conscious thing to do!) That way Amy gets to see your work, and the rest of The Honey Pot Bee gets to see it too!
- Don’t be afraid of making a mistake, it’s just fabric. I repeat, it’s只是fabric. (Unless you’re using Liberty, and then maybe make a test block because that shit’s expensive!)
- This block requires sewing of triangles, which some of you may not have done before. Don’t freak out! Simply align your triangle slightly above the background piece, so that it creates a quarter inch when you start sewing your seam line in the valley. (As pictured below.)
- 我的街区以7.5“x 9.25”的平等，这是一个四分之一英寸害羞的街区艾米。这完全没关系！
