Tree Skirt

Yes, I actually finished this project in the midst of all the other fun, festive activities of the season. I saw this a couple weeks ago on Sew We Quilt and knew I wanted it. I even used the same charm pack, actually my local quilt store had the Jovial layer cake, so I just cut it into 5" squares. It worked beautifully and went together fairly quickly. I had intended on putting a red binding, but my time limitation of wanting it under the tree immediately made it more efficient for me to use the backing as my binding. I didn't use any batting and machine quilted it with my feed dogs down on my home sewing machine and I love how it turned out.
 Of course, as quickly as I put it under the tree, it got covered with presents and I couldn't see it again until today, the day after.

Your tree skirt is very cute. I love the use of charm packs for this, or just all those Christmas scrap fabrics. Way fun!

Kathi: I followed the link for the tree skirt. It looks fun to make. I LOVE the tag she stitched for her daughter when she gifted the skirt!
