Blue Nickel Studios - Painted Forest

Create your own fantasy forest from all of your favorite scraps. You can use all of your floral scraps with various light or “low-volume” prints as I did in the model, or you can plant your forest in your own leftover bits. How about a plaid forest in browns and reds? Or maybe a wintery forest in all blues and silvers. Or go super-dramatic with a black-and-white forest against a backdrop of various reds. The variations are about as limitless as, well, the number of leaves on a tree.

Finished Size is 59 1/2" x 60".

Fabric Requirements:

  • 2 yards or more of assorted print fabrics for the leafy bits
  • 1 yard of assorted solids or near-solids for the branches and trunks. (Each tree needs 2” x WOF and there are 14 trees in the pattern)
  • 3 yards of assorted background prints or solids (each tree takes less than a fat quarter)
  • 1 yard for binding.
  • 4 yards backing fabric of your choice, less if you use scraps from the front.
  • 68”x 68” batting
