Winter Pines Too


Here's my version of Winter Pines as found in Black and White Quilts by Design. I used a very bright red for the cornerstones. I just love the way it turned out. The black and white fabrics paired with the paper piecing imparts a crispness to the top.

I would have had this posted earlier except we have been having cloudy, windy, or rainy weather which made getting good pictures tough.




I've decided to pass on the leftover scraps. If you are interested, leave a comment on this post and I will randomly select a winner Saturday morning. The scraps are assorted sizes, not large enough to make these trees. Many of them are suitable for half square triangles.

I think I've mentioned our cardinal before. I think our house was built right in the middle of his territory and he's not about to cede any of it! I brought my camera last time I was folding laundry. He actually sits there and watches me.
Thanks for stopping by and for all the nice comments about Winter Pines Too.

How awesome to see that beautiful cardinal up close. Gorgeous bird. Snoopy too since he likes to peek in your window.

I love scraps! Fingers crossed.

Winter Pines looks great and now the red squares are making even more sense: all little cardinals!

A friendly cardinal! Not related at all to "kamekazi cardinal", the bird that threw himself at the sidelights around our front door dozens of times a day for two years. I have to admit I was happy when he didn't return for a third year of self-abuse. Love the trees - so crisp and clean!

I have loved seeing how this turned out! I think it one of the cutest blk/wht projects I've seen. I'd love the scraps...I just don't have much for blk/wht in my own stash. I may 'copy' your idea too :)

ohh that's a striking quilt - I'm definitely a fan of the black/white/red combo.

Love the northern cardinal too - quilts and birds, my two loves.

I love this quilt and also saw it on the B&W challenge but when I realized it was paper pieced my heart sank. I have been saving monthly posts for a tree quilt done by paper piecing and for the life of me I can't figure it out, so I guess I'll have to take a class. Yours is beautiful.
