A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks — Tiny Double Tree

  Tiny Double Tree Block

Today we’ll make this cutie.

Had lots more fun going through my scrap basket!

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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 used my “Lazy Susan” technique for both layers of the tree.

The top tier will need to but cut & sewn one side at a time,

but the lower tier squares can both be layered,

cut & sewn at once since they don’t overlap each other.

I pressed these seams open.

Sew the 1″ black square between the 2 cream 1″ x 1  3/4″ rectangles.

I pressed these seams open as well.

Assemble the block.

I pressed the last 2 seams open too.

I made a couple more trees using 2 greens for one of the tress.

Show us your blocks at my Sewing With Susan FB Group.
