I love that Stephanie (Little Forest Quilt Along hostess) is not only giving us deadlines but she is also having give-aways for meeting them! And, there is not much time between deadlines, which means this is a rapid-fire-get-it-done project! It's totally keeping me engaged.
Here's what I have so far.
Here's a close-up of two blocks.
And here's a reminder of the inspiration for the project, the model.
Mine won't look nearly as crisp and modern because I'm using darker green for the trees, maroon for the trunks, and off-white for the background. And I'll have almost no variation in the shades, at least not at this point.
I've got half my trees pieced (unless I decide my hanging looks sparse, and I make more), so I'm on track. Our assignment for this week is to piece the rest of the trees, and then sew them into rows, and then sew the rows together. Essentially, we're supposed to finish the top. I'd like to keep sewing tonight, but BonnieBlue and Rhett are both sleeping and my machine is too loud (and right next to their rooms) so I can't. :-(
