2010 December Trees

Hello, all!  I'm Sara Homeyer from Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Very glad to join your fun group.  I wish I had found you earlier in your "wonky" year, because I am a fan of Gwen Marston.  I would have enjoyed your earlier blocks.

Here are my first two pairs of trees, 12" and 9" when finished:

I find they are not quite "identical twins" because I don't remember how closely I aligned the first set when sewing the layers together.  Hope that is OK with the recipients.

I decided right away to make a pair for myself right after making the Lotto pair.
Then I went back a read the directions again, and found I had gone wrong in using a solid jewel fabric for two pairs.  Back to the drawing board!

I found some TOT fabrics and made these three pairs today, which all seem to be leaning to the right:

Thanks to Sophie for her assistance.



  1. cute! maybe someone will make left-leaning trees to balance these out! (I'll see what I can do...)

  2. Sara, you are very welcome ... and welcome again to the Block Lotto. Your blocks are great. I think we're shaping up to grow a wonderful forest.

    I realized when I was reading your blog, Sara's Scraps, last night that we MIGHT have briefly belonged to the same guild--the Western Michigan Quilter's Guild that meets in GR?

    I've added your blocks to the list.

  3. Oh, I love you guys, I live in Toledo, Ohio, I know Ohio, but I love MI too, I have joined this group but I have too many other things to do, someday I will really join you.

  4. Both sets of my trees leaned to the left so we are now balanced - lol!
