I decided to add a grouping of tree blocks to the guest bedroom. This way I can change them out with each new season for visitors to enjoy.
Scrappy Spring Forbidden Fruit Tree
This scrappy paper pieced tree was an EQ7 block that I modified. The Forbidden Fruit Tree pattern is over 100 years old and still fun to make. This is a good tree to try first. If you have any seams that don’t quite match you can cover them with a button!
The same pattern is used to create version #2. Instead of buttons it uses pink fabric for the flowers. It also replaces the sky wedges with leaf fabrics to create a fuller tree.
Spring Yo-Yo Tree

This block uses yo-yo’s to represent the leaves and flowers. The tree is machine appliqued.
You can easily change out the fabrics to create summer and fall versions.
Have fun getting ready for spring!
