So, this week I got to work with the pile of fabrics destined to be my Modern Quilt Guild challenge. The challenge is to use Kona Lime and Kona Coal in any amount, plus one other color. Prints could be used in the same color shades. White or black could be used in small amounts or as the other color. When I looked at the green and grey I started to see trees and it was snowy outside and I was reading several books featuring winter environs. It seemed natural to put my trees in a field of snow. When I remembered these textured fabrics in my stash, I knew they were perfect. I got them at the Stitchin' Post and I don't remember the fabric company, but they are awesome to work with!
I tried several arrangements of trees, but since I didn't make the blocks any particular size, I just had to get started fitting the pieces together, adding coping strips and trimming here and there. The top is done and now, I just need to figure out how to quilt it. Ha!
