The Tree Quilt Block

the grids of the trees quilt blockHere is a tree quilt block that is very easy to make and doesn't require paper piecing. As you can see from the picture at the left, there are 8 patches in the block.

 

Four of the patches are flying geese units.  Follow the link, if necessary, to review how to make the geese blocks.

 

Cut a rectangle the same size as the geese patch to put on the top row.  Or you can assemble the bottom 6 patches, and then put one continuous rectangle on the top.

 

Sew the bottom pieces for the trunk and you are done.  This is a novelty block, so you can vary the size of the trunk pieces.  Attach a rectangle to each side of the trunk, and just cut it even to the edge of the block.

 

Here is a visual of how this block looks with a few other novelty quilt blocks.
