Making the Quilt Block
The construction of this quilt block is pretty straight forward and can be easily accomplished by the confident beginner. If you have never tried foundation paper piecing before, I recommend watching my YouTube video to help you understand the basics of this technique. You can also try your hand at this simple pattern to get your feet wet.
The Pinetree Forest Quilt Block pattern includes a Coloring Page, which is useful to help you determine what colors you like and also to help you keep track of which fabric to use for which piece. I like to attach my tree fabrics to each tree to help me remember which color I am using for each Pinetree.
The pattern is sectioned into 5 “strips” for easy assembly. I highly recommend printing your pattern on special paper and also using the Add-A-Quarter Acrylic Ruler. These two products will make quick and accurate work of any foundation paper pieced project!
Once you have your sections trimmed, you simply sew each section together. I have found that leaving the paper on for the section assembly will help to keep your pieces properly aligned.
Finishing the Pinetree Forest Quilt Block
Once you’ve completed the assembly of your Pinetree Forest Quilt Block – the sky is the limit on how you want to use it! You can make several to create a table runner or make several more to make your own quilt top! I will probably make a few more of these and use them as the focal points of some throw pillows on my living room couch! I can leave them out until it’s time to decorate for Valentine’s Day!
