Dearest Boy update

This is my interpretation of our current block.  These are supposed to be trees, but I preferred to make circles for the trees instead.    I tried to make the trees as shown, but could not make them fit within the block very well, so...I improvised!  I very much like this block!!  I appliqued a circle in the middle in the tree trunks, instead of each individual trunk, and I really like the way it turned out. It is not trimmed yet.



Have a super day, everyone!

I love how you are making this pattern "yours" - that's what quilting is all about.

Hi Julie! I'm thinking of rejoining the world of blogging. Maybe. Seems I have some things to say. At any rate, I love weeing your progress of your Dearest Boy quilt. I was wondering how important is the fabric selection? Did you start off with a pile that you plan to draw from or are you just winging it, hoping it will all come together in the end? I have a Dear Jane pattern I've been contemplating, but not sure where to start with colors. You know me- no matchy-matchy. But I also don't want to sew on a quilt for the rest of my natural life and not like it! lol. Thanks! Nines

I like your improvised version a lot! And the Halloween quilt in the header is really cute! Happy Halloween! cheers!

I like the circles, very much. I think we each need to alter patterns sometimes so the quilt becomes a piece of ourselves.

It's a great interpretation. It's fun that you're making the blocks your own

It is a very pretty design, even if it isn't "according to directions". Directions are highly overrated, don't you think? LOL

Circles.....now that was a good idea.

I love your version of the tree ring, the use of circles is very clever!!
