We’ll make this tiny tree block today.

More different, beautiful prints for this block too.

Cut:

  • 2 cream squares 2″
  • 2 cream squares 1 1/2″
  • 2 cream rectangles 1″ x 1 3/4″
  • 1 green rectangle 2″ x 3 1/2″
  • 1 green rectangle 1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
  • 1 black square 1″

I think my “green” print with the red wavy stripes

resembles a decorated tree don’t you agree?

I used my “Lazy Susan” technique for the flying geese again.

When using a directional fabric for the squares

it pays to audition placement BEFORE trimming!

Ask me how I know…..

Can you see that the print is actually face down & sideways?

Once the flying geese are complete,

sew the trunk between the 2 background rectangles.

Next sew the 3 segments together.

I pressed these 2 seams open and also removed the few stitches that are within the last seam allowances to remove some bulk.

This will help to flatten the tiny block.

Don’t forget to post pics over at my Sewing With Susan Facebook group!

See you tomorrow.

Just Keep Sewing…
