Welcome to Week 4 of the Christmas Tree Mix Quilt Along. I hope all of you are enjoying each week and are seeing wonderful progress. This week we are continuing our Scrappy Tree Blocks. How many have you made so far? I’ve made 6. There are a total of 12 in the quilt so pace yourself, you have plenty of time. Next week we start on the Lil Tree Blocks. There are 24 in the quilt. These are so much fun to make.
***New Update to the pattern!
After further reviewing the pattern and with help from my quilter, Megan, we decided there would be a much easier way to complete the little trees. I decided to redesign the Lil Trees to have fewer steps and fewer pieces. It’s a win, win right? This should not affect your fabric requirements and the alternate trees look identical to the original. See below to download the PDF of the Alternate LIL Tree. You can still use the original LIL Tree instructions in your pattern if you would like. It’s totally up to you.

After looking at my calendar and realizing I have totally overbooked myself for the fall I decided I would make a small version of the Christmas Tree Mix. I still wanted to join in on the fun but this will help me get ahead this fall. See below for a picture of the smaller version. This will not come with any instructions. If you would like to make a smaller version you will make 6 Scrappy Trees, 12 Lil Trees, and 12 Corner Stones. All the sashing and borders will be the same width (length will change due to smaller size). You have the option to make the 4 border stars but I will not be making them at this time. My smaller version will be 52" square. I’m still really excited to make the quilt even if it’s a smaller version!
