Happy Wednesday! At the end of last week, my Month 5 packet arrived for my Fig Tree red and green mystery sampler. I was so excited to see two patterns I’ve been wanting to make: can you believe I’ve never done a bow-tie quilt or a Tree of Life block?
So of course I set out to get these blocks made as quickly as I could!
A “Tree of Life” quilt has actually been on my to-do list for some time. I have a super fun pattern in mind and hope to get to it one of these days with a big collection of half-square triangles I’ve saved just for that project. So it was fun to make this one block and get a little idea of how much fun this pattern can be.
It went together pretty quickly once all of the half-square triangles were finished up and trimmed!
The bow-tie blocks had me at first sight, too. The bow-tie was one of my Grandmother’s favorite quilt blocks, and she made a beautiful bow-tie quilt she named in honor of my Grandfather who always wore bow ties. I can’t remember making a true bow-tie quilt before, so this was fun to get to make a scrappy bow-tie block.
Now that I’m caught up on my red and green quilt blocks, maybe I can get to some other projects that have been needing my attention.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
