When I saw this setting I knew this was the one!
Block Names: Pine Tree, Temperance Tree, Christmas Tree (ohhh...green and red would be fabulous...), Tree of Paradise, Tree of Life and Proud Pine.
This is Pine Tree from the book:
Big Book of Best Loved Quilt Patterns
The title kind of says it all...a classic book!
The Setting has the blocks on point - but the tree tops point to the center.
Each block is 12"
Yes, that's a lot of small HST's!
(over 400 but who's counting)
It is machine pieced and machine quilted.
I put birds on the back.
Kind of a forest theme...trees, birds...and I was looking for someplace to use this great bird print.
Wendy at Legend and Lace was gifted with Tree of Life blocks. The pattern has more HST's than mine.
Maybe that makes it a Tree of Life and not a Pine Tree ;-)
She's a rich woman with her sewing pals!
I now have three Needle Barrels. Each with it's own special features.
The center one is in English and marked imported. The other two are from Germany - one in German the other in English.
I admire the detailed decals.
The center needle barrel is also a sewing kit.
By pressing down on the thimble the top slides off to reveal thread wrapped around the center 'spools'.
The very bottom of the barrel spins to select the needle size and type, including "Latest Invention self-threading needles".
Have a great week!
