Fresh Cut Pines quilt

I have lots of friends on Instagram, it's really nice to connect with other women who have the same interests :)
One particular group of quilting friends, all loved the quilt pattern Fresh Cut Pines, by Sherri Falls, it's in her book!
We all bought the fabric for the quilt and were going to make them independantly of each other.
Mainly because we live in Australia, California, Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Chile and Oklahoma :)
I'm going to think of my dear friends every time I see this quilt!

I thought I would dip into my stash when I made this quilt.
So many four patch units!
99 to be exact :)

I didn't take a closeup photo, but in every square, is some cute fabric with vintage looking trucks carrying a pine tree in the cargo bed.
I bought that fabric and the background, everything else I used from my stash.

When I finished my quilt top, I ran downstairs and went into the backyard to take a photo.
I didn't realize it at the time, but all the photos were blotchy from the warm sunshine!

 I waited until my husband came home so he could hold up the quilt for a better photo when the sun was lower in the sky.
I began this quilt in January, and just worked on it between projects, when I had some extra time.
It wasn't difficult to make and now I've got a pretty new quilt!
