    These are the first three tree blocks that I will be adding to my train quilt. The weeping willow is from Marcia Hohn Quilters cache and the Christmas tree is from About.com Janet Wickell.

    The weeping willow was to be paper pieced but I don't know how yet so I measured and cut....I have to add an inch of sky to top of pine tree and take off some of the bottom of the pine tree block. Not perfect but I'll stick with them. The lighter green weeping willow was my first and it's backwards.

    i like both weeping willows :wink:
    nice block, new to me. maybe i'll try it.
    the pine tree is nice, also.
    paper piecing is fun, bet you like it once you get in a little practice.

    I like those!! The weeping willows are pretty neat. I've never seen a pattern for that before! I think they're going to work well with the trains. Can't wait to see this all come together. :)

    doesn't look backwards to me. it looks more realistic the way you did it. watcha talkin' about, willis? :?: :wink:

    you did great on all of them. it was very clever of you to realize you didn't need to paper piece the willows. (it's a great technique but not always necessary.) :P

    You did a great job!

    I have the Weeping Willow pattern printed out, but haven't gotten to it yet. A good idea for my strip scraps!

    I have never seen the weeping willow done like that - thanks for sharing! I like the "backward" one better, to be honest. I agree that it looks more natural.
