Farmer’s wife: Tall Pine Tree

I have two remarks on this block:

First, that I took a shortcut when sewing the tree top of the middle tree. Strictly speaking, the big blue triangles should each consist of two triangles half the size—as in the tree tops on the bottom.

Second, that I used more different fabrics than in Laurie’s original. There, the trees were all in one colour, and the background in another. I preferred to distinguish the trees (or rather the parts of the trees) by colour. When sewing a whole quilt out of this block, it would be nice to have trees in different shades. With this block especially, it is a pitty that I am only doing one sample block, but you can easily imagine what a whole quilt would look like: a nice forest!
