Trees and forests


Brenda here with a forest of wonky trees. I'm quite liking these trees -- they remind me of the American Elms that form an archway along my street. I borrowed the idea of someone else in this blog. Thanks. I've made lots of pine trees, but after sewing all those triangular sky pieces to the house roofs, this was a nice change. I used a bit of curved piecing on the tree trunks, and some of the trees also have words on this, advice or otherwise.

I love the curvey trunks and the words. I always include word fabric in my quilts - I'm a teacher, so got to keep literacy skills going!

Very cool trees! I love the one with the branches showing in the canopy of the tree! And how ever did you do the curved trunks?
