Amanda's Christmas tree skirt

One of my daughters' best friends is getting married next month
and she asked if I would make a tree skirt as her wedding gift.
Any excuse to make a quilt is good with me!

Except for the label,
which will be sewn in tonight,
this tree skirt is finished!


I'm not sure how many tree skirts I've made for
wedding gifts,
but this is one of my favorites.
 

It went together quickly and uses so many different fabrics.
 

Christmas fabrics are some of my favorites...
especially those with metallic gold in the design.
 

The pinwheels add some whimsy to the design.
 

Thanks to Mary at NeedledMom for the design.

This will go in the mail in the next few days and will be
ready for the October wedding.

Happy Quilting!

I think a hand made Christmas tree skirt is a lovely wedding gift. SO many pretty prints in this one! And I like the octagonal shape.
