Trees, Trees, Trees



When I saw this quilt on Megans blog
I knew it looked familiar.
I had it in my too do drawer. Megan did hers in a beautiful white. It is by Alex Anderson. I love this quilt but I did not want another Christmas quilt so I am kinda making it my own way. It will have a 2 inch sky blue border and a wider border with all sorts of greens. I will not be adding the holiday lights.
As of today, I have misplaced the issue but Alex Anderson also has the pattern out for this quilt. Thanks to Megan, I was able to purchased what is called a Tri-Rec ruler which made it easier to make the sides.
I hope to have it completed soon. I actually need to get some fabrics for this one.

I love the way your tree quilt is turning out! The different blue backgrounds look great! That is what I love about quilting, taking a pattern and making it your own. Good job!
