    I went to the search section and found exactly what I am looking for, but don't know how to make it happen!! There are blocks with tall trees-made with one fabric, which is what I need. I can't get the background fabric to come out right. Is there an easy way to do this or is a paper piecing project? All help is greatly appreciated!!!!

    bronnyb posted one and the other one was called a pine tree quilt. Sorry I don't know how to transfer that info. My block is only 4 1/4" wide and 3" tall (that is unfinished). Thanks!

    So you WANT them 3.75" x 2.5" FINISHED? Or a different size?

    Your block is a short fat rectangle. Shouldn't it be a tall skinny one?

    ok, here's her quilt:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-44929-2.htm#1025584

    Are you making the same quilt? So you want it a square tree block?

    Have you made your 9 patch blocks yet?
    What size are those UNFINISHED?
    Because that's what you have to match size-wise.
    Adjusting the tree block is a lot easier.

    You can see from her in-construction pictures that her tree and trunk were surrounded by larger pieces of the background.

    yes, it would be a fat rectangle-and it will be 3 3/4 wide and 2 1/2 tall. It is to be used with bear paws and signature blocks for a wedding quilt. Thanks

    Do you like any of these shapes?

    They are the FINISHED size (proportionally) you said you needed.

    You can also just draw a rectangle the size you need and draw the trunk and tree on it (which is basically all I did) so you get the proportions YOU want within the space.
