Today we are sharing our Winter Tree Applique Block. Although it may seem rather stark and boring, I can relate to our leafless winter trees, contently hibernating, yet at the same time preparing for their busy growing months that loom just around the corner. Like all of our applique blocks, our Winter Tree was made to fit on a 6″ x 6″ block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs.
I have already shared 3 other applique patterns in our January Applique Block collection and you can find the link to the January collection HERE.
