Christmas Tree Block

I could finally turn my Christmas Tree pattern in to a block...which required wasting some fabric and really forcing my brain to work out how to put the pieces together to make the block. All this trial and error resulted in this cute looking tree. 

Since I had very little white fabric, I had to use different pieces and even sew some scraps together to make the size I wanted. It is ok because this is a trial block. I also had to make some adjustments to the size of the pattern I drew to be able to make each row doable and look nicer. I haven't sewn borders around this block but I think a border makes it look even nicer. The block measures 10.5" x 8.5" like this.

I will be posting a tutorial some time next week and this time I will make sure I have enough fabric :-)
