Last year in April I made two table runners with the Crazy Christmas Trees pattern. This first one was given just last month as a gift and the second one I kept for myself.
Midweek Makers at Quilt Fabrication on the January 20th blog showed a scrappy version of this pattern and I thought what fun that would be to make again. I ended up at the last minute making some Christmas gifts this past year. This pattern is so fun, I decided to get busy early this year.
The pattern calls for 8 blocks, I only made 7 as I only plan on putting 3 trees, not 4 in my runner.
The three trees are done, but I am very unhappy with the center tree top. I also took some creative adjustments to the top of the trees on the two outside blocks. I think I will be making one more tree block and changing out the bottom and the top of the center tree. Not sure what went wrong, but fixable.
It seems the peacock teenagers are trying to get flirting advice from Orby the rooster. My daughter's pea hen Marilyn isn't paying any attention to them, she is not impressed. Orby has a whole flock of lady hens, that seem to adore him, so maybe he will give them a little advice on how to romance Marilyn. Doesn't look he is very impressed either.
