My First Paper-Piecing Pattern – Little Tree

I am developing a taste for paper piecing. I am making placemats with the houses I have sewn last fall and the Delectable Mountains I have made during the last weeks. I wanted to add a few trees to my design and, instead of looking for an already made pattern, I decided to try my hand at making one. I came up with this really simple design.

The trees look as follow when placed next to a house:

They will be placed below the Delectable Mountains I have showed you last week, which will also be next to a house:

I have made the pattern in the old-fashion way, with paper, pencil and ruler. I was not in a mood for computer design. Of course, as I made more than one tree, I had to duplicate the pattern a few times. Also in the old-fashion way, with two sheets of paper positioned one on top of the other, against a window. It is good, from time to time, to go back to paper and pencil. And actually feel the creation of a line as a result of moving fingers, wrist and arm.
