Westering Women Block Four

For the April chapter in this fascinating project the block was titled "Lone Elm". This pattern is more frequently known as Pine Tree or Christmas Tree but the story this month was about guideposts or signs along the route west and one such sign was a particular Lone Elm.

The block pattern traditionally has the tree pointing to the right side but, since our project is about heading west and most of the women on the trails were heading to the northwest, I changed the orientation of my block to match. I'm sure you can catch a glimpse of my little wagon through the tree.

With being away sewing again this weekend I am making good progress on this project.

The marble or woodgrain lines of your background fabric give a nice movement behind the perfect geometry of the Lone Elm. Great choice!!
