For May, I'm keeping the same theme going from last month and starting Sarah's Tree of Life trek quilt.
Hers will be a scrappy log cabin quilt in a tree of life pattern. I'm super excited about this idea. I played around with it for quite a while in EQ7 before I merged my 2 favorite ideas for her quilt into this one layout.
I've divided the blocks into 3 sections: the leaves, the trunk and the background. The leaves will all have white-on-white centers with mostly light and dark green surround (30 blocks.) The 3 center leaves will have the same white centers with all light green strips (3 blocks).
The trunks will all have traditional red centers with either all scrappy brown (6 blocks) or brown with low volume strips (6 blocks.)
Finally the background blocks (19 of 'em) will all have yellow centers with all low-volume strips. That should all add up to 64 blocks for this 8x8 blocks layout.
So, my goal for this month is to get all these blocks cut out and at least half of the blocks pieced together (that's 32 blocks.) For me, this is a pretty tall order, but things should be leveling out at work so hopefully if I keep up with home life, I'll be able to spend more time in the evenings on this =)
