Christmas tree skirt

Just finished the flimsy of this wonderful tree skirt pattern this afternoon. It really is a great pattern. It is written well with excellent instructions. As soon as I have it quilted I will cut into it and make the space for the tree trunk and the closures.

My backyard was too sunny so I took the quilt top over to my parent’s house and took this picture in their front yard. I have had a big stack of “Peace on Earth” by 3 Sisters for Moda for a while. I know it is not the traditional red and green that most folks use at the holidays but these really are “my” colors and I love this fabric. I have a hunk of red tonal fabric that I will use to make the bias binding. I really hope to have this quilted by next weekend!
