Modern Christmas Tree Blocks {Honey Pot Bee}

As I mentioned on Sunday, Molli threw out a Wild Card block tutorial last Wednesday. Once I had my fabric selection for the Honey Pot Bee made… it was clear I was going to have to pull in some additional fabric for these blocks straight away!

I chose 2 Peppered Cottons for the brown trunks for these Modern Christmas Tree Blocks, and I think that the texture that the peppered cottons add as the trunks is a nice touch and the colors play well with the Kona Eggshell and Bluegrass.

The great thing about this Bee is that you will be making for yourself, so go ahead and hop over to Molli’s Wild Card Block Tutorial and join in if you like!

    Crazy cool! Love all the link ups and projects. 🙂 I can’t wait to get home from work today to get busy sewing! Thanks so much Yvonne!! Happiest Holidays and Merry Christmas!!

    I love the cool colors of your trees and I think the Peppered cottons are perfect with them.

    Sometime ago I had fun making a mini forest of paired trees in different greens – they’re on my display wall pinned to batting as I haven’t decided on a final layout for them!

    I’ve been wanting to make these tree blocks in exactly these colors – so watch out once I get my Christmas gift sewing done! 😉

    I joined the bee, made the tree blocks and find they are quite addicting! One block turned out quite a bit smaller than the other. I’m not sure if I read the pattern wrong, but will keep both as they are sooo cute. So far I have resisted the urge to buy more fabric….ugh!

    Isn’t it funny how you think you’ve got it all nicely put together and then, as my English mum would say, “Someone throws a spanner in the works!” meaning you have to back up and rethink a bit. Love the peppered cottons additions.

  9. These are lovely! I had hoped to make a couple this week but the way things are going it’s not going to happen! Look forward to seeing your at the end of next year too!

    Those sure are lovely Yvonne.

  11. Very cool blocks, I like the addition of the shot cotton in the trunks.

  12. kittywilkin says:

    Those colors are divine!! I agree, the shot cotton provides great texture, and will be a great addition to your mix. I really love this block, too… it’s a great jump start to the Honey Pot! <3

  13. Peppered cottons are a favorite of mine and I love the way you’ve used them paired with Konas Yvonne!
    The blocks are terrific!

    Ha – wild card quilting ey? I can see this will be a fun ‘bee’. The trees are lovely.

  15. Jasmine says:

    So cute! I have been wanting to try peppered cottons.

  16. Your trees look so festive! Love the peppered cotton trunks.

  17. Izzy says:

    Love your trees!! Now that I’m done with Christmas sewing, I hope to have some time for these over the holidays.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
