Quilter's Garden Mini Quilts

I finished making 3 blocks for the Quilter's Garden BOM swap. I made 2 tree blocks and the clothesline block. I hope to make the fence block too, but I wanted to make sure I got the blocks done in time for the swap, so I might make more blocks later. I loved this one. I got a bit creative with one of the trees too as you will see.
I made my tree with scraps of yarns and threads. I used a washable stabilizer and sewed the yarn and threads to the stabilizer until I felt I had enough. Then I washed the stabilizer out and cut out the tree top shape and stitched it in place. I am keeping this block.

This is the clothesline and I added to 2 mini quilts and embroidered the clothespins to tack the quilts in place. I am keeping this block too.

I will be swapping this block.

These 2 blocks I am keeping. They need to be sewn together, but I might make another block, so I will wait and see what I want to do first. I see it might be better if I make the clothesline connect to another tree or post, so the clothesline isn't just out there in the air, lol!!!
