Big Sur Baby

I have had this half yard set of Birch's Big Sur for ages and yesterday finally busted it out.

I loved this quilt posted over at oh fransson and wanted to create my own version.

You can see the planning stages, I did a quick sketch, drew up some triangles in Illustrator and printed off the templates. This is a lot more planning than I usually do!

Finished top and back are shown here. I'm not totally sold on how it turned out, but I love the idea and will definitely add some little trees to my library. I'm looking forward to quilting this one and playing with all of that negative space.
