Design Wall Monday 8/17/13...

This week has had a 
Christmas in August 

I have one Christmas Tree Skirt
top finished and ready to be quilted
and the other needs
the blocks to be sewn together.

This one is ready to be quilted.

This skirt needs the set in triangles
and then the blocks can be sewn together.

The fabric with the red bows is
dated... 1993!
I'm sure I didn't pay
$11/yard for this fabric!

The Christmas Tree skirts are on my
It will be nice
to have another check off of that list.

You can find the free pattern for this Christmas Tree skirt

Happy Quilting!

Nothing wrong with using up stash! The skirts look great and will be wonderful with trees with them.

Oh, so pretty! This gets me in the mood for Christmas!

Ramona said...

I am right there with you! I have another project started that uses Christmas fabric, too, and I am trying not to wish the fall away.

Ramona said...

Thank you for your comments! The older Christmas fabrics came from my mom, so it's fun to see what she used then. I didn't quilt in the 90's, but made clothes for my daughters and nieces. Christmas fabrics were not in my clothes making stash though.

I have a long list of things to finish before Christmas. I think it's hopeless, but I will keep on chugging. I just love Christmas fabrics!! I made skirts, but gave them all away. Now I want one!

The old fabric still looks good. Must feel good to be using it.

Ramona said...

That is typical of quilters, isn't it? Make things for others but not ourselves. This pattern is super easy and quick.

The old fabric was actually my mom's, but does feel good to use it...Especially with the price of fabric today!
