    Not a Jeweled Forest

    I've been admiring all the Jeweled Forest trees here, but couldn't get the pattern, so... I decided to make my own forest. These blocks are my very own "Ponderosa Forest". I drew the pattern and started experimenting. Each tree panel is about 12 x 20 and I plan to put a border on each one and make wall hangings out of them. I've got some gold metalic thread to do some FMQ on them too. I'll post some more pictures when I get them done, but here they are for now.

    This was my first try at paper piecing and I tried using Golden Threads paper and stitching through it, and also did some using freezer paper and folding it to stitch along the fold. For this project, I like the freezer paper method best.

    Wendy!
    The old saying "Necessity is the mother of invention" certainly applies to your tenacity in creating your own pattern! Who knows this may have opened a new 'career' for you creating patterns! I'd certainly buy this pattern from you and a lot of people were looking for the Jeweled Forest pattern :0)

    Great job, lady!

    Really cute!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    That is very pretty. I love how tall your tree trunks are and your fabric selections. I bow to your expertise.

    Who needs a pattern when you're that creative. Those are wonderful.
    The one who dies with the most fabric wins.
