2 More Forest Blocks


The third block of the Forest QAL is a beautiful forest with tree trunks, called the ‘Aspen Grove’. The first time I saw it I thought WOW, and immediately OMG!! How to make this? What colours to use? So I had a look at pictures of Aspen Grove, and I fell in love with the Fall colours (not really a surprise!). So I wanted to use lots of orange/yellow/red.

I’m not totally satisfied with how it turned out. I find it hard to recognize the trees, so maybe I’ll make another version of this block, using different colours. Just don’t know yet which colours that would be. Any ideas??

The last block so far is a Maple Fox. And this made me very happy, because I really was hoping for a fox being one of the patterns. Why? I don’t know really, but I do like foxes a lot.

So this is what I’ve made so far:

I can  absolutely recommend this QAL. The instructions are very clear and the patterns are well made. And of course it is so much fun to do!

Groetjes, Dorien

Hi Dorien! I love the fabrics and colours you have used! I like also so much foxies and was happy to see the pattern. I'm still so behind because made only the woodpecker. All your blocks are so beautiful and colours are great together! x Teje
PS. I noticed today that new posts doesn't show very quickly to the Bloglovin but in the google reader they are in the same time we send them.

Hi Dorien, I really like your new blocks. The trees are amazing and really look like tree trunks with the forest floor all green and shadowed and the red sky of a sunset showing through!

Hemeltjelief! Dat is echt echt prachtig ! Die zalige warme herfstkleurencombinaties, en zo ontzettend mooi van figuren ! Dat vosje, die bomen, echt grandioos ! Ik bewonder je werk, maar zelf zie ik het niet zitten om quilten te proberen, ik hou het bij haken en naaien ;)
'n vrolijke groet,
