{ quilted tree skirt }


I guess it's about time I posted something a little creative on this blog! This is a quilted Christmas tree skirt that I designed a few weeks ago and just finished making last night. Once we get our (real live) tree I will take a better picture, but for now I thought I'd show ya what it looks like.

The fabric for this came from FabricLand. I'm not sure what the fabric line is called... and I've already cut off and thrown away the selvages.

Binding the inside corners of this thing was a big pain in the butt. I thought I was making it easier by making it a square cut out, but now I'm thinking a circle would have been much easier.

I quilted it myself on my Pfaff... so don't look too closely at the quilting. ;-)

If you're going to be in the Abbotsford area this weekend you should stop in at Andrea and Kim's Christmas open house. I was there last year and it was amazing! They are a couple of very creative chicks with lots and lots of gorgeous stuff to sell. You can see all the details about when & where on their blogs.

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (New Living Translation)
