I wish on this block I had made the tree taper all the way up to the top in one piece. The branches are really seven pieces. I think that if the middle one were a little thicker as it tapered up to the top the others wouldn't have been as difficult to put under the branch. None of it is really difficult but that one thing would have been nice to have done. When you are putting the grass on remember that you need the seam allowance on all the sides of each block. If you put the grass on the edge you would have had quite a bulky seam and your quilt wouldn't be flat.
