My progress so far on Krabapple.  I have all the trees paper pieced and trimmed.  I've also got the checkerboard sky ready to be sewn to the trees.  The sky is two light dark light sections sewn to either side of a dark light dark 9-patch.  This part goes onto both sides of the tree with a dark 9-patch at the top of the tree.  I have three of the blocks done.  This project will go together pretty fast since all the 9-patches are done...swaps are great!

The rest of the nine patches both dark light dark (top left) and light dark light (top nearly center) are for the border.  A cheddar and red will be the sashing with an olive green for the setting triangles.  Oh didn't mention that these trees go on point. 

We'll see how much sewing gets done tomorrow.  I have an entry in a Chili Cookoff to make for a fun group competition that takes place on Wednesday.  I'm also making a pumpkin goodie.  My place is going to smell yummy later tonight.  Wish our team "DIWS ur Chili Cluck" a Blue Ribbon on Wednesday!

Good luck, hope the chicken chili goes well. And the pumpkin treat seals it. The crabapple blocks look great.
