The Tree Quilt Block
Here 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.
