Tuesday's Tile - Twin Pines

Quilter's Tile - Twin Pines

No, not identical twins but the kind where each has its own serendipitous personality.

I recently enjoyed a mini class with Rene Iannarelli on different ways to piece trees. Great ideas!

Trees were on my mind as I was string piecing, so thought that I would try string piecing some pines.  I covered these two muslin foundations with bits of green.

After trimming the pieced section into a triangle, I stitched a sky fabric on the edge. 

This was trimmed into a vertical rectangle.

Soon I had sections pieced and ready to put together.  I did trim the sections larger than I thought was needed. Good thought, maybe I've learned from all those years of making blocks only to find that they were a bit too small.

I pieced my sections together

and added quilting.

  Off the cuff and totally spontaneous, what fun I had making this quilt.
I think that I spent more time picking out the fabric for the binding than I did for the rest of the tile.
