I bought a pattern for a Christmas tree skirt at the Wisconsin Quilt Expo a year ago. I purchased the fabric while we were traveling further north, began cutting pieces when we got home, and then life got in the way. One day about three months ago, I wondered out loud what project I should be working on and Ray suggested the tree skirt.
All of the pieces are machine-appliqued onto a black background.
Then each wedge is machine quilted - yes, I had to learn something about free-motion quilting to finish this! I'm not very good at it yet! I'll always love hand-quilting - no surprise!
The pattern instructions aren't the best. If I were to make this again (which I'm not going to do!), it would be so much better! Oh, the wedges are about 24" long so the skirt is about 4' 6" in diameter. And Ray loves it!
