Here we are at the end of the second segment with block 8. Our designer this week is Laura from SLice of PI Quilting. Laura has outdone herself with this destination. This block has everything I love about lakes – blue water and gorgeous pine trees. By the way, this has to be my new favorite way to make pine trees!
Please head over to Laura’s blog to get her pattern. I can’t wait to see your version of her lake block!
Be sure to check out the other hosts for their versions (above) of our block and their hints for making it!

Wow, those trees are intense! Great way to make them that way–prairie points!!!
I really love those prairie point trees! How fun!!
Another great block!
I love that block and immediately went to Laura’s page and downloaded it. I just made one of Laura’s patterns – Exploding Heart – and I think she’s a genius. 🙂
I love those trees. They are so cute.
