One Two TREE Quilt Along, Part 2: Tess and June

Hi there! How did it go? Did you finish the first trees for the One Two TREE Quilt Along? So fun to see all the trees on Facebook and Instagram. Such a pretty forest we’re creating together!

I have two new tree friends I’d like to introduce to you today.

Tess and June

Today we will make our two tree buddies Tess and June. Tess and June have been together since they popped out of their little seeds on a beautiful spring morning. They know each other so well, they even finish each others sentences. Tess is the tallest of the two, but that doesn’t bother June a bit. Always nice to have a big friend around that keep you sheltered from the wind.

In this blog post

In this blog post you’ll find the foundation paper piecing pattern for Tess and June. You can find the instructions for this technique in the blog posts about our first block Flynn

Besides the pattern you’ll also find the fabric requirements and the placement of the Tess and June blocks in a overview of the quilt. 

New here? Welcome!

This blog post is part of the One Two TREE Quilt Along. This is a free QAL where you will learn to confidently quilt your quilts yourself with free motion quilting and rulerwork quilting.

First we will sew 16 trees and those trees we will use as a canvas to quilt a different pattern in each of them. We’ll take it slow and start with the very basics. Want to join in? Start here and read more about the Quilt Along and the Fabrics and Materials

Fabric requirements

You will need the following amount of fabric to make one Tess and June block. This block measures 11 x 15 inch, 11.5 x 15.5 inch including seam allowance.

  • Tree 10 x 15 inch (25 x 37.5 cm) 
  • Tree trunk 4 x 4 inch (10 x 10 cm) 
  • Background fabric 8 x 15 inch (20 x 37.5 cm) 
Fabric kits

When you’re working with a rainbow fabric kit for the QAL you will make Tess and June with the following fabrics: Ice Frappe, Chartreuse, Tangerine and Azalea.

When you’re working with the Green/Teal you will make Tess and June with the following fabrics: Candy Green, Jade Green, Honey Dew and Parrot.

For the Orange/Pink kit you will use: Buttercup, Orange, Bubble gum and Azalea.

Make sure to use only half of each piece of fabric, since you’ll need to make two trees in each color.

Quilt overview

This is where Tess and June will be placed in the quilt. 


Here is the link to download the pattern for Tess and Junes. Go ahead and print it true to size. Select ‘do not scale’, or set your printer settings to ‘scaling: 100%’. To check if you printed the pattern the correct size you can measure the one inch square. 

The finished block measures 11 x 15 inch, 11.5  x 15.5 inch including seam allowance.

Let’s start sewing

You can now start making the sections of the Tess and June blocks just like you did with the Flynn block. There are also three sections for this block. Make sure to past all the pieces of the pattern together before you trace your pattern to freezer paper. All three sections are in two pieces on the pattern.

Putting the block together

Now you’ve finished all the sections you can put the blocks together. First sew the tree tops together, sections A and B. Then sew section C to section AB.


And there your Tess and June block is finished! Don’t they look cute together?

Let me know in the comments below if you have any questions. You can share your trees with the hashtag #onetwotreeQAL on Instagram of share them in the Facebook group. I’d love to see how your Tess and June trees are turning out.

I’ll be back in two weeks with our next tree friend!
