Show and Tell

Here is the Christmas Tree Skirt I started working on this season. As you can see I didn't get it done for 2010, but it'll be ready for 2011.

It uses 9 fabrics, 5 reds and 4 greens. The 45° diamonds are strip pieced, so it went together fairly quickly and the set in triangles weren't much different than making baskets. I did learn that when sewing set in squares, you just do one side at a time - don't bother to try and turn everything with needle down.

I look forward to making a pattern for this tree skirt and also a table top quilt size.
