Tree Block

Lee is going to make an awesome quilt of trees - and she asked our bee to make blocks for it.

I knew exactly what I wanted to do, then totally changed my mind when I pulled out her fabrics.  I'm in the middle of planning a Ninja Training party for Becket's birthday party this weekend - so I ended up making a kind of paper pieced Bonsai tree.

Or maybe it's a tall rain forest canopy tree - perhaps Dr. Seuss.  Not sure.  But it was fun!

What a great idea! I'd love to learn to paper piece, but haven't actually sat down to teach myself. This block looks great!
