schematic of quilt pieceTreetop Tiers: Sew a Recs triangle cut from the background fabric to the left side of a Tri-Mate triangle cut from the lighter treetop fabric. Press the seam allowances toward the darker fabric. Complete the unit by adding a Recs triangle cut from the background fabric to the right side of the Tri-Mate triangle. Press the seam allowances as before. Repeat to make a total of nine pieced treetop tiers.

Tree Trunk: Stitch a tree trunk square between two tree trunk background rectangles.

Press the seam allowances toward the Easy angle triangles. Sew an Easy Angle triangle to the remaining sides in the same manner, and press as before. Trim the blocks, squaring them up and leaving just 1/4" seam allowance beyond the background fabric corners of the Pine Tree block. Each block at this point should measure 5 3/4" square.

Sewing & Pressing: Stitch the blocks and setting triangles together in diagonal rows. Press the seam allowances open. Stitch the rows together; press the seam allowances all in one direction. Trim the edges of the quilt center square, leaving just 1/4" beyond the corners of the blocks.


Inner Border: Using the same fabric as for the tree trunks, piece the 2" strips as needed to obtain the inner borders of the required length. First stitch these to the sides, trimming the ends even with the quilt center. Press seam allowances toward the border. Add inner borders to the top and bottom and press as before.

Outer Border: Add the wider border strips in the same way as for the inner border.

Finishing Suggestions

Quilting: Layer and baste the quilt. Using hand quilting and dark blue thread, stitch-in-the-ditch around each tree, the Pine Tree unit, the block, and between the borders. measure and mark a double zigzag along the border, them quilt. Using pale blue-gray thread, hand-quilt swirl designs in the setting triangles.

Binding: Use 1 1/4" single-fold binding.
