Quick and easy
Quilty Trees is a quick and easy quilt to make up! Most quilters will be able to have this one done in a day or a weekend.
I pulled a variety of solid greens for my version of Quilty Trees. I added the gingham and a subtle speckled print for some fun contrast.
This quilt is quilted on my machine using my favorite wavy stitch. It quilted up the exact same way as the multi zig zag stitch but uses the wavy stitch instead.
I kept this quilt soft and modern by using this subtle cream fabric for the backing and binding. I tend to use the backing as the binding often since it is the perfect way to use up all of that excess fabric from the backing. This quilt reminds me a little of the farmhouse style that is popular right now.
Make it scrappy
The Quilty Trees quilt pattern includes a full on scrappy option too! The instructions are included to make scrappy version using your scrap stash. I’m excited to make up this quilt below using my low volume scraps as the background and my greens as the trees.
Use multiple squares for the trees or use one fabric for the trees and a have a scrappy background.
Below is the colorful and playful Ruby Star baby version of Quilty Trees. I’m lovingly referring to this one as the Dr. Seuss tree quilt 🙂
