If A Tree Falls - A Work in Progress

Happy Friday, all! December was my month to be Queen Bee for my Canadians Quilt Bee and I had asked my bee mates to make me a red, aqua and grey (or some combination thereof) modern Christmas tree block on a white background. I've now received all of the blocks so I decided to put them up on the wall to see what we've got.


This won't be the final layout, but I'm loving this so far. I'm so pleased with the variety of blocks and the different sizes of trees. Thank you bee mates! :)

I added one block with the 'tree' on its side à la the philosophical experiment of "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" Because some of the blocks have different whites, I think I'll add more whites to make it look more intentional and balanced.

Have a fabulous weekend!

  13. It's so fantastic M-R! What if you did some low volume white on whites? Would that help to blend the different white values together? I'm so excited to see this in person :)
