Welcome to Block 3 of the Forest Quilt-along organized by Juliana (Sewing under rainbow) and Joanna (Shapemoth).
This week's block is all about trees! The beautiful aspen trees that grow in the forests of the western USA. This block is rated as beginner to intermediate. It may look complicated, but these are pretty much just strips to sew together and no difficult sections to match up. As with the rest of the blocks in this QAL, this is a 12" block. Please be sure to print at 100% or no-scaling. Fabric requirements include about 1 fat quarter for the white or tree fabric mainly because you need long enough pieces for some of the tree sections. The rest of the pieces can be done with scraps.
You can download the pattern and instructions here.
Here's my autumn version of the block
but it works well as a summery block as well.
