I’ve been avoiding this trippy tree for awhile, mostly because I wasn’t sure how to cut the triangles. But then I had an idea today – why not paper-piece it.
So I sat down and drew this.
This does not include seam allowances so I made sure to allow extra fabric as I was sewing. If you’re new to paper-piecing, I like Ellison Lane’s Paper Piecing for Beginner’s video tutorial.
It turned out well, but when I put it with the rest of the trees…
I didn’t like how small it was. So I added a top to it. Then squared it off.
The only other thing I would change would be to make the tree narrower so I could use scraps instead of fat quarters. (Or maybe I just need bigger scraps.)
