September Block Quilt Doodle BOM 2014

I know, I know, it's another tree, an 'Evergreen Tree'. I hope you don't mind another tree but I can't have a forest unless there are a few trees. I hope to someday have a cabin in the woods next to a lake, doesn't that sound wonderful. A quiet place to go with no traffic noise. A place to listen to the birds sing... This month's block is the final block for the center section. It's a cabin in the woods.  I hope that you have fun with this month's section. I will be putting together some extra embellishments for you to add to this section of the quilt, so check back! This way you can make your cabin your own!
The 'Evergreen Tree' pattern can be found  HERE and on Craftsy. The pattern is free for the month of September. If you missed Chilly Silly Snowmen, Cozy Cabin or Big Tree, Sparkling Stars, Fir Tree, Northern Hockey Skates, Toasty Mugs, or Sweet Tooth,  it's not too late to get the patterns. They can be found for a small fee on Etsy and Craftsy.  Again, everything is based on 2 1/2" squares, you will want to try to match this block with how you did the other blocks in this section so that it all goes together. Let me show you how I completed this month's block.

Following the pattern I cut out all of my 2 1/2" blocks, 2 1/2" strips etc.
Here I am sewing my triangle squares to form the
evergreen tree. I am sewing corner to corner on my paired
2 1/2" blue and green blocks.
I find it easier to sew the sections of the block
together if I have it all laid out by my sewing machine.
Sewing the blocks all together...
'Evergreen Tree'
Remember to post your finished Evergreen Tree block onto the Flickr account for a chance to win the prize at the end of the month! If you blog about it, please email me a link so that I can attach it to the Pinterest Board I have going for the BOM 2014. I hope you have fun with this section of the mystery quilt. It can easily be done in a weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's trees! As you can see with the quilt layout that the quilt is coming along nicely. There's still some surprises! I'll be announcing the prize for this month's block around the 15th and the winner will be announced on October 1st, when the last section is out.

Happy Quilting,

Joanna Perry

  1. Thank you, Cindy! I love trees :-)

  2. You can't have too many trees in my humble opinion. My in-laws have a cabin on a lake in Wisconsin. It is a wonderful place to reboot. I love listening ti the loons at night.

  3. I read a suggestion of putting a plain top border with name or initials of the quilter and 2014. Sounds like a good idea. Are we doing borders with this BOM Cindy? I'd like to start sewing the finished rows together.

    1. There will be borders on the quilt. :)

    For some reason I have not been able to print out the pattern for this tree.l

    I have not been able to get the September pattern. Is there a problem with the site?
