Modern Christmas Trees QAL

I made my trees for the Modern Christmas Trees QAL being hosted by Christa's Quilts http://christaquiltsblog.com/quilt-alongs/  Because I couldn't decide on which fabrics to use for the trees I decided to make them with the scraps from other projects.  Christa refers to these as improv trees, which makes me sound very modern, which I am not :-)  To me they are scrap trees. I used my Tri Recs rulers for the first time and am happy with them.  I've had them for a while but didn't know how to use them, so this was a good project to work that out.
 
 
 
This Annalee Quilter Mouse is my birthday present to myself.  She makes me smile.
 
Have a great weekend.
God Bless You.

Hello Miss Modern quilter! I love your improv/scrappy trees! I have been thinking of joining in, but have so many other things on my plate. However, you definitely got me thinking again!
