I made the block with a new pioneering technique which I made up all by myself (although usually when I say that, the more experience quilters sigh in exasperation because, in quilting, there is no such thing as a new idea and this is probably an old idea called Mcwhipperting or something). Anyway, if you would like a tutorial on how to achieve this effect of little pieces nearly touching but not quite, let me know and I just might DO DAT TING. What shall I call the technique? Ooh I know - my maiden name was McLaren (and I used to add "like the racing cars" because I thought it made me sound cool and glamorous) so maybe I will call it McLarening. So, if anyone would like a tutorial on this revolutionary pioneering technique called McLarening, let me know and make your comment sound like Dr Seuss if you can, like a man, in a van holding a pan. You can probably do better than that.
P.S. The tree was inspired by this block made by Rachel Stitched in Color which in turn was inspired by this pincushion which was made by Corey Little Miss Shabby who, for my money, is one of the most talented people out there right now. I hope she reads this and likes me more.
