I recently received this lovely fat eighth bundle of Black Tie Affair by Basic Grey for Moda.
Inspired by Amanda Jean’s Bright Birch Trees and the trees in my yard I cut squares from the black fabrics. Next I randomly cut tree shapes into them.
Using the light grays and creams I cut 1″- 2″ strips and inserted them in my cuts
to create branches
Before I knew it I had a whole forest.
Now to figure out a setting.

Your trees remind me of the pecan tree next door.
As a not so big fan of winter, I would never have imagined this. Now I can't wait to see where this goes. Great idea.
I've been wanting to try something like this. Thank you for sharing your process.
I can't wait to see your finish. Great fabrics.
Oh love them–I just was out on my deck taking a shot of the black tree silouettes against our grey skies for my android wallpaper….I will always remember this as being a totally gray December–I hope your Season is Merry hugs, Julierose
And a great forest it is!
timely post! i was admiring some lovely white birches just yesterday….so crisp and clean in a gray stick world…
I love your trees. It will be a beautiful quilt. Have a very Merry Christmas. Hugs
Nice! I look forward to seeing what you do with these.
