The Coast to Coast Start…

IMG_5859

I was so excited late last year when I received an email asking if I would like to join the #coasttocoasttravelingbee along with 5 amazing quilters. Of course I said yes and then I started thinking about what my starter block would be. I had so many ideas swirling through my head but when it came down to it I decided I wanted to so something with trees. I have been looking at quilts with the Tree of Live block so I made one of those blocks. But I wasn’t happy.

So I noodled on it for a few days and started to stress because the deadline was coming up. I really wanted to stick with trees because I want my quilt to be nature themed. Blue skies, critters scampering around, sunshine, you get the idea. So I came up with this block which is really a combination of 3 blocks.

I also included this block for a label that all the participants can sign. I hand embroidered the words and numbers. When I go to attach to the quilt I will probably add a border to frame the whole block. I’m so excited to see how this quilt evolves!

    I love what you did with this block and the first one would be an awesome fall tree! Have fun can’t wait to see it finished.

    This looks SO neat! I am kind of sad that I am going to get this one last! I have lots of ideas already!

    These blocks are lovely! I freed up my design wall last week so that I can play with ideas when this arrives! =]
