This quilt is made in rows. We will start from the top and make the tree row first.
Cut your white background fabric 38 1/2"x10"
Cut 6 orange, 8 green and 6 blue triangles. I cut mine wonky to give it a little more character.
Now from your brown material cut 7 3"x1/2" pieces for your tree stems.
Lay your trees out as shown in the image below.
A little wonky.
Now, using our starch applique tutorial applique the trees.

Cut your white background material. 38 1/2"x7"
E-mail Natalia if you'd like the template for the circles.
First you will cut out 24 red, 48 white and 24 green pieces, as shown in the image below.
I left the outer edge long and will trim later.
Sew the green and white and red and white pieces together, as shown in the image above.
Now sew them into sets of 4
Continue stitching them together until you have 3 green and white and 3 red and white circles.
Now trim the blocks down to a 6" circle.
From your green & red material cut 3, 2" circles and using our starch applique tutorial you will applique those circles onto the centers of your circles.
Using our starch applique tutorial you will applique the circles onto the white background, as shown in the image above.
From your blue and white material you will cut 8 white & 8 blue blocks that measure 3 3/8".
Put a white and blue block together.
Draw a diagonal line across them, and then stitch a 1/4" on both sides of the line. As shown in the image above.
Now cut that block in half. As shown in the image above.
This will create 2 blocks that look like the ones above.
Lay the blocks out as shown in the image above.
Repeat making a total of 4 snowflake blocks.
Sew all 4 blocks together to create the bottom row.
Now cut your scraps into 2 1/2" blocks. Sew the blocks together into 4 rows of 16 blocks.
Sew the rows together as shown in the image above.
Now add a 2" blue and a 4" green border.
Bind with red.
