2 Trees, 1 Bird, 6 Leaves

I received an email from a reader a few days ago saying that she wanted to have a go at the tree block tutorial, so I emailed her back saying yes please try it, and if you do I'll put your block up on my blog. Well a couple of days later she sent me a picture of her tree block! I can't explain how exciting it is to see something made by someone else from something you designed! And here is Michele's block...I love it! I really like the fabrics she used (does she know about my not-so-secret crush on Kaffe Fassett?!) and love how the linen background works. I can't wait to see what Michele turns this into! A mini quilt? A pillow? One of many blocks for a bigger quilt?! You can go see what she's up to on Michele's blog, Nostalgic Cafe.

I finally got the binding put onto my version, and it will off to its new owner in the next few days. This is one I will be very sorry to see leave.
It would be very happy living on my wall of quilts!
