I made this as part of the Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap. I was inspired by these blocks I made for Jill @ Pie Lady Quilts for our online bee. These improv trees were so much fun to make, and I thought it would be fun to make a quilt using the same block.
My partner seemed to like nature inspired quilts, and blues/greens, so I thought these would be perfect for their quilt. Along with the improv trees, I made some blocks with birch style trees to break things up a bit (inspired my Crazy Mom Quilts)
I decided to quilt this with wonky square/spirals.
For the binding I just used solid blue, I can't remember which shade this is...and just a tiny bit of Kona Grass. For the back, I used a leftover Juliana Horner print from the backing of another quilt. I know it doesn't match, but my partner likes orange...and it's going on a wall :)
This is my first swap, and my first mini. I'm really happy with how it turned out--I hope my partner loves it too! I also had fun trying something new (thanks Jill!). I'm also looking forward to seeing what I get in the mail later this month!
Hope everyone had a very Happy New Year!
Because it's Friday, I'm linking with Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts and the Weekly Inspiration Linky Party at Nini and The Sea
