Coming along

Laying out trees one at a time

Aide memoire of the order. Trunks to be added and then trimmed to right length.
I'm working away at Isla's quilt and taking my time. Once I decided on the fabrics and arrangement of my line of trees I got down to the part I like best, sewing and ironing and sewing again. I foundation pieced the trees using fine leave-in washable paper 
and pieced the trunks and background. The arrangement of trees pointing inward may seem odd but they will hang upright over the side of Isla's little bed. The piano key border formed by the trunks will easier to bind as there will be no points to lose. I'm putting off doing the hands for which I have card templates but will try bagging out with thin interlining. Not yet though!

I'm not really a pink pastel person but I love what you are doing with this quilt.
