InstructionsUsing the same techniques learned in Amy Gibson's Block of the Month Course for April, make 48 hex pieces that are 5/8 inch on a side.
Type of item: Home Decor
What was your inspiration?
Because I am working with holiday colored fabrics, and hope to have this completed to display at Christmas this year, a Christmas tree block was a natural.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I choose a very bright background for this block, but the tree would probably pop a bit more against a litter background. Also, make sure that there is enough contract between the background piece and the hexagons that form the outer edge of the tree. A few of mine tend to blend into the background.
