    You probably would need to make some whole log cabin blocks to do a tree but it is doable. I just drew this quickly.

    What if you put two blocks color side together to form the tree and then added a white sashing with a brown square to form the tree trunk.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    What a fun quilt it will be great to have around during the holidays. Lots of colorful prints.

    I also really like the Log cabin tree layout. How neat!

    beautiful just the way it is.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Manic, What is the finished size of the block on your drawing? I can take it from there easily enough but I would be nice to keep ratio of length to width "right". Thanks what a clever layout!

    Will the tree layout limit the amount of use you might have for the quilt? The non-committal one lends itself to Christmas without screaming the time of year it is appropriate. Depends on the intended use you will have for it. I like the tree design though.

    It's kinda like the Christmas sweatshirts--really cute but usable only about a month out of the year.

    Log Cabin block is one of the, if not the most versatile pattern out there. There are books on the different ways to lays them out.

    WOW I wouldn't have thought of that in a million years. Doing a zigzag with log cabin block is really clever and brilliant. I love it.
