So the wheels have been turning since seeing the Pinterest Challenge at younghouselove a week or so ago! They are so right, we pin, and pin, and pin, but are we doing anything with all this pinspiration? I didn’t have time to take on the challenge when they first announced it, but I finally decided the other night I needed to do some just for fun/relaxing crafting. So I browsed my pinterest boards and this one is what stuck out to me the most at that moment. Oh my gosh I love this so much! So I started pulling and cutting fabrics and this is what I came up with.
Not bad! :) I rather like it. It ended up measuring somewhere around 24″ square. I haven’t decided what to do with it yet. I have some time before it will be the proper season! ;) I am thinking either a super chunky white ornate frame or I have been tossing the idea around of making a bunch of these trees in different sizes, I think tall and skinny would be to fun, a making a Christmas quilt!
I made a mini patchwork 6 point star to top it off. I just used my knowledge I have gained on these stars from making my swoon quilt blocks which apparently is not much since it took me like 6 tries to figure this thing out. Yikes! p.s. it was late. ;)
It’s the same process that I am using for my stacked quilt (which I have a completed stack to share) without the wonkiness I am using for the quilt. Just cut different size strips and lay out till it looks right and then sew together.
So that’s my Pinterest pinspiration creation! Oh and I’m pretty sure I will be making some of these, maybe smaller? for my mom, sister, and aunt for Christmas decor because I know they would all love it. ;) Those I will frame.
Have you completed any projects inspired by Pinterest lately? I’d love to see them so leave me a link. Oh and if you’d like to follow me or check out my boards my Pinterest link is on the right.
Thanks for stopping by!
