Snapshots of life and crafts on our little homestead

Tree of Life Quilt: Part 1

Our crops are almost done and the canning and dehydrating of our fruits and vegetables has slowed to a trickle, so now I can dedicate some more time to my fiber art projects. The big project I will be working on this winter is a tree of life quit. Thus far all of the base fabric pieces have been cut, a few blocks started, and I have started marking grids on the fabric pieces that will be cut into half triangle squares. Since the quilt top will require 1,528 half triangle squares, 1,184 of them which are only 1 1/2 inches square, I will be using a speed piecing method that will be covered in detail in my next post for this project.
