On the cover of the book: Minimal Quiltmaking, written by Gwen Marston is a tree I wanted to make for some time. Then I found a free tutorial of a similar tree on Pinkadot Quilts written by Kelly. What I did differently was make a background of scraps in all sizes. This is also the way my daughter, Kellie ( yes I know it is a bit confusing, Kelly and Kellie but I'm talking about two different persons here;), likes to work. I once showed Kellie's work here.
To use different sizes of scraps is probably not the easiest way, but if you form little units and join those to bigger units, you will end up with a big piece of back ground fabric in no-time. While doing this I sew, cut or sew extra and iron and cut again until my piece is big enough.
So nice to use up all the little quirky scraps !
Thanks to Kelly and Kellie for encouraging me to work like this!!!
