A Scrappy Happy Holidays Mystery Sew Along - Block 4

Yay!! It's time for the reveal of another block in 'A Scrappy Happy Holidays Mystery Sew Along"! Of course, no Christmas quilt would be complete without a Christmas Tree so here is my version. I originally designed my 'Oh Lil' Christmas Tree' block for a Moda Bake Shop Christmas sew along a couple of years ago, but I love it so much I had to include it here.

Of course, I'm still working on three different versions of the quilt, so here is my block in flannel.

Mark the alternate blocks at 5.75" and 6.75".
This is a pretty straight forward block to sew. There are a few flip and sew corners to create the star and some sewing of rectangles together to create strips then it's simple starting at the top and sewing the strips together. My tip to keep the trunk lined up down the middle of the block is to mark the adjacent strips where the trunk should be, then line up the trunk seams with the marks and pin to keep them in place to sew.

Happy Sewing!
