Time Flies

Audrey's (Quilty Folk) recent Tree of Life finish reminded me that I had one in the works. 

I started my Tree of Life February 2015  and made two 12 inch blocks.

March 2015 I made four blocks. 

October 2015 I made six blocks.

And then the trees quit growing.

This week I made six more blocks.
I'm thinking I will make a total of 41 blocks to set on point without sashing.
Backgrounds will be solid blues.
I now have 18 blocks.
I'm using a free online pattern when I actually make blocks.

I was thinking I'd make a Family Tree for the backing. Still thinking about that.

these blocks are so gorgeous--lotsa piecing in them and seams are a brave dooby ;)) they are beautiful hugs, Julierose

Well done for persevering with your Tree of Life blocks. Love the idea of putting your family tree on the back. So much work in each block, the finished quilt will be worthy of such a special and appropriate backing.

These look great. Can't wait to see a whole forest of them!

These look great and I am fascinated by the idea of a family tree on the back - no idea how you'd do it, but I'd love to see!
