Description

My daughter wanted a Christmas Tree Skirt for Christmas.  Oops!  I thought if I started now I just might have it done for next Christmas!  The pattern is from an old Quiltmaker (No. 106) magazine my sister gave me and I purchased the fabric at Jo-Anne fabrics.  I cut out the fabric at a craft day at my church last weekend and since today is a "snow day" I hope to get a lot done today.

That pattern is super cute! I like that it is Christmasy without being so busy like some of the ones I've seen. Looking forward to seeing pictures of it.

I finished the tree blocks finally. They were a bear to put together. The rest of the quilt should be a lot easier:)

Rebecca

Awesome! Can't wait to see pics!

Mary

Busy last few weeks so my project was pushed aside for a while. My plan is to get the top of the skirt finished tonight so I can start quilting this weekend.

Mary

I finished putting the top together and should have be ready to start hand quilting by tomorrow.

Rebecca

Good for you on making progress! I would have been all into this at first and then set it aside thinking I had plenty of time to finish it before Christmas.

I can't wait to see it!

Mary

Ready to quilt. Although the pattern calls for machine quilting I prefer to hand quilt. Not sure how long this will take...?

Mary

Still quilting

Can't believe it has been a month since I checked in. Working and going to school at the same time can really take the fun out of life.

Rebecca

That is so true Mary! Hope you at least have had some time to sew even if you didn't get on here to update us.

I made the mistake of showing my daughter the tree skirt before I cut the hole in it. She decided that she wanted to use it for a table topper but I should still make her a tree skirt...kids...:/

Too cute to be hidden by the branches of the tree! I think I agree with your daughter. Showcase this on a tabletop for Santa to see.
