Pine Hollow Patchwork Forest Quilt Along – Week 6

This is it! The final week of the Pine Hollow Patchwork Forest Quilt Along! I have loved seeing all of the varieties and variations of this quilt. I keep wanting to make it in so many different color palettes after seeing all of yours!

If you missed the previous weeks you can find them here:

Week 1 – Introduction and tips for choosing fabric

Week 2 – Video demonstration of how to make the Improv Patchwork Tree Quilt Block + make 28 small trees

Week 3 – Make 23 Medium size Trees 

Week 4  Tips for making “Wonky” Improv Stars

Week 5 – Large Trees + Finish Piecing your Blocks

(Apologies for getting this post up late today. #life) 

This week your assignment is to piece all of your blocks together using the directions in the Pine Hollow Patchwork Forest Pattern.

Assembly tip: Assembling your blocks does require one Inset Seam (aka Partial Seam) process. These are not scary at all, but if you’d like an extra demo or refresher on Inset Seams, check out this post

If you are making the original Improv Patchwork Forest, refer to those instructions for piecing whatever size quilt you are making.

I’ve had a lot of fun putting this low-volume red and white one version together and I’m pretty pleased about how it’s turned out so far! I can’t wait to get it off to the quilter!

I was thinking this would be the finished size this time, but now I’m thinking I might add a border. And then I need to pick out a back. I’m really wanting to only use something from my stash, so we’ll see what I can dig out today!

I’m excited to get mine off to the quilter. If you don’t already have a quilter in mind, Lady Belle Quilting is offering a 20% discount to all of you on edge to edge quilting!  Enter the code patchworkforest20 in the comments section of their quilt form when you submit your quilt.

(Boring but important details: Not all prizes are eligible for international shipping, but an option will be given to winners who are outside the United States. Full disclosure – a winner was originally drawn for a prize that was not eligible for international shipping. Completely my fault for not stating the rules from the beginning. That winner was reassigned to a prize that was eligible for international shipping and a new winner was randomly selected for the original prize. Thanks for your understanding. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with questions or concerns.)
