Log Cabin Tree Skirt

In the past I have mentioned that I make
Christmas Tree Skirts
as wedding gifts for special people.

We have wedding coming up in June
and a tree skirt is needed.

Out came the Christmas fabrics.

I had a jelly roll of "Holiday Flourish"
and in my quest to use up my jelly rolls,
Log Cabin blocks were made.
Kona "Snow" was used along with Holiday Flourish.

I like the above layout better than the layout below,
but I didn't want to cut the Christmas fabric from the corners
and I didn't want the white half of the blocks around the 
outer edge of the tree skirt.

The blocks were reversed
and the corners were cut on the diagonal.

Maybe.... just maybe I can quilt some
feathers in the white spaces.

I better get practicing!

Happy Friday!

Oh, the versatility of the log cabin! My mother used to buy a nice "living room" trash can as a shower gift. I like your concept better .... though everyone needs a trash can...

What a wonderful wedding gift that will be treasured for many years! I have a wedding next week, but I'll be lucky to finish a new dress for me by then. Oh well, the bride and her sisters all received lap quilts last Christmas...
