lynne's scrappy stash forest block #1

look at all the pine trees in my forest! 

i am really happy with how it turned out, very scrappy.  i had originally made a strip of 12 geese flying across the tops of the trees.  i made these before i made any of the trees of course...needless to say, the geese across the sky will hopefully fulfill another step of this quilt LOL coz they sure are not going to go on this block.  i also had wanted to stitch a verse in the sky.  that is still a possibility, but for now, this block looks busy enough to me with the 27 2 in. x 1 in. geese in the trees....i am really pleased--even with the wonky ones!!  i really want to see what is coming next!  can't wait!

Love your scrappy forest. 6 trees... WOW... I love how you have used your scraps to build the block and the trees. No 2 alike.

Those geese are definitely small and awesome. I really love the scrappy background.

It is amazing that all of the tree blocks and all the geese blocks are so different. Seeing the variety of creativity and watching everyone design their own quilt is what makes this so much fun!

Wow, those are tiny flying geese, and so well done. The block is beautiful.
