Tree Farm - Newberg



The trees in this pattern are based on contrasting groups of fabrics.  Choose any group of colors you like providing each selection has good contrast with the others.  The designer chose a mix of prints in white with black, gray, blue, and black.  My sample is made with just two colors: blue and green with a mixture of prints in each.  The finished quilt is 52” x 66” – of course you can make your project larger or smaller as you wish.  The method used for this project creates four blocks at a time so if changing the size keep this in mind.

REQUIRED PATTERN:

The Tree Farm by Karla Alexander for Saginaw Street Quilts

RECOMMENDED RULER(S):

Spider Web Ruler No. CGRKA6 by Creative Grids

NOTE:  1/4 to 1/2 Yard Freezer Paper to use as templates if you don’t have the ruler.

The following is per the pattern (my sample used 8 green prints and 8 blue prints)

3/8 Yard EACH of 4 Different Small-Scale White and Black Prints

3/8 Yard EACH of 4 Different Small-Scale Gray Prints

3/8 Yard EACH of 4 Different Small-Scale Blue Prints

5/8 Yard for the Binding

3-3/4 Yards for the Backing

NOTE:  If you are using directional fabric, you will need extra yardage.  The amount will depend on the size of the print.

 
GENERAL SUPPLIES:

Rotary Cutter (your favorite size cutter)

Ruler – Your Favorite (recommend at least 6” x 24”)

Small Mat or Rotating Mat (optional but very helpful at your machine)

Regular Sewing Thread in Neutral Shade to Blend with Fabric (I like Aurifil)

New Needles (80/12 Microtex are my favorites)

Hera Marker, Wooden Iron, Bone Folder, Point Turner (optional but very helpful)

Straight Pins (I like the Clover Patchwork Pins)

Seam Ripper (I like the Clover one)

1/4" Piecing Foot ORthe foot you use to achieve this

Sewing Machine in Good Working Order

CLASS PREPARATION:

If you wish you could cut your fabrics prior to class.  I suggest cutting the 3/8 Yard pieces to 12-1/2” wide strips the width of the fabric (selvage to selvage).  Cut two rectangles 12-1/2” x 11” and set the remainder of the strip aside for use later.

We’ll do the stacking of the fabric in class.
