looking for tree applique

4 posts in this topic

Hi! I'm in the process of doing a quilt block that will be joined with others that friends are doing. Since I really don't know much about quilting - after looking all day for the pattern I want online, I decided I'd do what I do best - I'd crochet and then sew the things on to the quilt square. We've got a 'May Day' theme for the lap quilt and I decided to go with butterflies, flowers, etc. But I would really like to have a tree motif also. All I found online are for Christmas trees and I don't want a Christmas tree. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Here is a palm, it's worked separate from the square:

You could also crochet two or three chains.  Tack them down in a curvy, natural way.   Make some leaves. Cluster them at the top.  Instant tree.

Thank you! I knew I had had one at one time because it was on a square - an apple tree square. Well, I couldn't find it because it was NOT an apple tree square but a 'cherry blossoms square' and it was by Mary Jane Wood. I'm going to check out the links you shared, Empress! But here's the link to the one I found - obviously 'allfreecrochet has picked it and I'm pretty sure it was on an individual site when I found it a few years back. I am thrilled to have found it again: http://www.allfreecrochetafghanpatterns.com/Granny-Square/Cherry-Blossoms-Square/ct/1#

Oh, I love the one in your first link but I've never learned to read a chart. I may learn just to do this tree ;)  The one with the sun, moon, etc, I added to my favorites at Ravelry so I can get it later.
