Before I teach or advise anything on my blog, I myself try multiple options to figure out the best working solution. When I find my favorite product, I look it up on Amazon and add an affiliated link to my website. This way you can easily find the product and if you decide to purchase it, I will get a small commission (without any addition cost for you!). This small money helps me grow my blog and keep offering you the best advice.
OUR QUILT PATTERNS
Hi, I am Rugile!
Wellcome to my blog. Here I reveal my quilting tips and tricks and share my quilt stories.
EASY TO MAKE - SEE VIDEO TUTORIAL
8 DIFFERENT TREE OUTLINES
Birch - light and slender, a true signpost to the northerners heart.
Ash - simple and round, loosing it's deadwood in every storm, yet remaining strong and unbreakable.
Oak - grand and majestic. Not without a reason our ancestors were praying to these trees.
Poplar - a common tree in the northern hemisphere - tall and fine.
To aid the applique process, we made a detailed sew along video tutorial. In this tutorial, I walk you through the process of making the trees with turned edges in great detail. To ensure the easiest, quickest and the least error prone way to make these trees, I combine two turned edge applique techniques - using fusible web and using interfacing - and explain all the peculiarities.
You can also make the trees using the raw edge applique technique. For that, check out our detailed step by step guide to raw edge applique with fusible web that also includes a video tutorial.
Thus, if you want to make a tree applique - you will! There is no way you are going to fail ;) Check out our tutorials!
I hope these tree outlines will help you to bring forest closer to your home. Perhaps it will even inspire you to plant a tree! :)

OTHER APPLIQUE PATTERNS
Chesnut - splendid and serious. Every spring, chestnuts announce summer with their magnificent flowers.
Linden - simple and pretty. Lindens silently shine throughout the year like peaceful candlelights.
Evergreen - geometric and sharp, the most popular tree of all - the tree of Christmas. Evergreen outline is included in "Our forest. Winter" quilt pattern.
Maple - elegant and poetic. Maples happened to be my favorite trees. I was used to watch a very old one in front of my window. It was blooming with modest greenish blossoms in early spring, hosting bird nests in summer, elegantly turning yellow after the first strikes of cold and glittering from white frost in winter.
Maple was the first tree I made from this series and included in "Our forest. Winter" quilt pattern.
There are 8 kinds of trees in the "Trees from the Forest" applique pattern: evergreens, maples, linden, chestnut, oak, poplar, ash tree and birch. Soon, each tree outline will be available to purchase separately as a stand alone pattern.
As an African proverb says, the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is NOW! :) So, let's plant some trees with thread and needle today!
Our new tree applique pattern "Trees from the forest" includes 8 different tree crown and 11 different tree trunk outlines. Combining the two, you can make over 80 distinctly looking trees from this single tree applique pattern and plant your very own forest!
