Funky Tree Farm Funky Tree Farm

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Rotary cut
  • Use fusible web
  • Basic machine applique skills

Pattern Description:

Nothing makes me happier than a project that lets me have some fun digging in my scraps and allows me to put them together in a funky way. If the same project allows me to play with some machine applique and embellishment, all the better. This festive little runner was named by my daughters, who declared upon seeing it that the trees on it looked exactly like those at my uncle's Christmas tree farm. Lest he have a coronary thinking his trees are this misshapen and funky, I assure him they are not. But for a machine applique and embellishment project, these trees are perfect! Foundation "crazy" pieced trees and fun embellishment with iron on crystals make for a quick and festive project.
