Teetering Christmas Tree Block

Another exciting Split Triangle Row pattern! 

Using this method make Split Triangle Rows for your Teetering Christmas Trees.


 For this pattern you will require 
2 pairs of green and cream HSTs (made from 5" squares).

 Split your rows like this.  
Use this tutorial as a guide. 
 


 Cut:
2 - 5" x 13" cream rectangles.
1 - 1 1/2" x 13" brown strip. 
 
You may notice that the cream rectangles in my photos are smaller than I am directing.  I would have preferred them larger for trimming later.  


+AP16

Sew the cream and brown pieces together.

Cut them into random sized rectangles like this. 
Oh geez...I should have taken 2 photos!


Alternate the Split Triangle Rows 
and the rectangle strips to make trees. 


Sew together and trim.

This odd-block setting would make a fantastic Christmas Quilt 
with the Teetering Trees.

  1. Just discovered your blog and I could stay here for hours! Love your creative blocks and patterns, and am so proud that a fellow Canadian can wow us like this! I've been a sewist for about 60 years, learned on my mother's treadle machine. Discovered quilting about 10 years ago and haven't looked back! I like quick quilts because my room-size stash needs to be dipped into and because I try to donate 4 or so a year to various organizations, usually supporting my daughter's current interests. I'm totally self-educated and love tutorials that expand my knowledge. One I'd love to read is your "warm and cool colour demo" but the links say this is no longer available. Can you re-post this?

  2. Melanie, boy I was all over your blog, know I tried at least 3 links that didn't work for the colour demo.
    One was on the "3 & 8 quilt", then "setting odd blocks with 2 1/2" strips" and "strip tube used 2 ways" .
    Lol checked the new link you sent me before I fired this off. Woohooo it works and now I will enjoy your wonderful tute!
