A Finish

The finished Quilted Christmas Tree Skirt.

Designed by Jacquie. Tutorial here.

Quilted with Snazzy Snowflakes from Willow Leaf Studios.

Thanks Jacquie for a wonderfully fun pattern!

The pieced back. I miscalculated on where to start the quilting, so the borders all ended up being a different size. Just adds to the wonky-ness of the Christmas Tree Skirt.

We are travelling to Michigan for the Friday night reception. See you Monday morning with the stash report!

Have a Happy Birthday on the 17th

It turned out very well and what's more, it is ready in time for the reception! Hurray for another finish.

I better thank Mayvis for the bday prompt. Time is flying by so quickly and boom, I should have gotten a card in the mail days ago. Hope you have a good day since by now you are gone on your trip.

Great present, the "modern" look is catchy!

Well, that really is outside the box for you, but I really like how it turned out. As usual, you're churning out quilts like no tomorrow!

I'm like you--a traditionalist--but it sure turned out pretty! Glad you went with the green.
