A bit of everything

I thought it was about time I did another post since it's been about 2 weeks. And amazingly enough, I've actually been quilting!

First up is a mini-quilt with a tree applique... I'm only half-way done - it still has two more layers of leaves to go, and some grass around the tree trunk, but I'm loving it so far. I'm also loving this little guy who was my quilt holder!Next up are blocks I've made for two online Bees I'm in, Fresh Comfort and Beatnik Bee. I have my months coming up in October and December and just can't decided what 'theme' to go with! These two are for the Beatnik Bee group...

And these were for the Fresh Comfort group...
I have also pieced together some wonky strips of fabric into something resembling grass and sky. I'd like to applique something onto them, possibly a tree, but the background might be too busy. For now they are just hanging in my quilt room while I try to get inspired. They started off like this...And turned into this...

Love your tree block and the colours you have used...very pretty!

I also love that you are training your young man in the art of holding blocks straight and still...he is doing a fine job!

Thanks for sharing! My favorite color is green - the piece here is great! I may try this style for a border on a story quilt.
