2012-27: Pine Tree Orphans

Pine TreePine Tree quilt was made from a group of blocks that guild member Joan won at a retreat.  Joan donated them to the Community Outreach Committee because she did not like them enough to make them into a quilt.  When I showed her the finished quilt, she was pleasantly surprised and joked,  “I like them now!  Can I have the quilt back?”

I chose to sash the blocks with a plain blue shirting fabric and dark green small print sashing squares (both from my stash) which made the finished quilt look cohesive and attractive.   I quilted it with a Valdani variegated green/blue thread in a pine bough meander which was inspired by a pine bough meander in Darlene Epp’s Pocket Guide to Meandering.  It was quick, easy and carried the theme of the quilt top.

The quilt finished at 43″ by 51″ and was donated to Victim Services.
