|My girl, Shiloh, looking over the Pine Forest blocks.|
Here is a quick tutorial for how to make the pine tree part of the blocks. Start by pulling a scrap of green to blue/green fabric and cut it into a triangle.

Sew the tree fabric onto a piece of background fabric.

Flip the fabric over and press the seam toward the tree to make it stand out a bit.
Sew fabric to the opposite side of the tree. When pressing turn the seam allowance toward the tree.

Trim up the side fabrics so the unit has a rectangular shape.

Make a tree trunk. I cut the brown fabric 1" wide.

Finally - sew the trunk unit onto the tree unit and trim to a rectangular shape.
Use low volume fabrics (prints and solids) to finish making the blocks into a 12.5" square. Blocks can be made with as few as one tree, or as many as you'd like to include. Here are two samples I made up.
Hope you enjoy making Scrappy Pine Forest Blocks!
