This is Row 6 of Jennie’s story quilt and in it she creates the forest but it would make a stunning border for a quilt (maybe without the tree trunks though!)
In this row Jennie uses a selection of fabrics for the trees and trunks – but again from Fat 1’4’s. This deep dark forest uses the Tri-Recs ruler which makes cutting fast and accurate and while Jennie shows you how to cut one at a time – you could use the rotary cutter to it’s potential by cutting lots at once!
The template also gives you really accurate piecing.
And while you are making this row – think about how great this design would be as a border for another quilt – use scraps or just two colour and maybe drop the tree trunks.
The Tri-Recs ruler is particularly good for making the 54/40 Flight or Flight block which is featured in the background – top right hand side – and we do have a video on this in our archives, which you can enjoy by clicking here.
(and keep an eye on the blog as Valerie is busy using this template on another quilt!)
