The block is foundation pieced, and since I drafted it on the computer, I can print the pattern on vellum, which makes the piecing much easier. (See my post on why I print patterns on vellum). Since the pattern was fairly simple, I decided to make windows with sashing:
This was my prototype block so there will be some changes for the next one. The background will be lighter since this background doesn't contrast with the tree enough. And I will probably add another tree. Whatever changes I make will be minor because I'm loving this block! Can't wait for Christmas break when I can work on it!
