Forest Quilt Along - Block #3
I've finally finished block number three for the Forest Quilt Along hosted by Julianna and Joanna. This block was designed by guest designer Caroline. I love this design! I have long wanted to do a stand of trees like this (possibly not with a paper piecing method though) and to use this texty newspaper print for the trees. When I first saw this block, I knew right away that I wanted to use that fabric! I have to admit though, I'm slightly disappointed with the way this block has turned out. I was trying to imitate the colors of Aspen trees in the fall with hints of blue sky in the background, however I feel like my color choices came out looking a bit flat. It's not the way I had envisioned it. Oh well, live and learn.
