Christmas in June

Usually the retail market calls for
Christmas in July,
but I don't have a wedding in July.
A wedding gift is needed for June.
As some of you know,
my traditional wedding gift is a 
Christmas Tree Skirt.

The top is finished and it's ready for quilting.

This is a shimmery, sparkly, silvery tree skirt.
I love these festive prints and colors.
It's all basted and ready to quilt.


Hopefully it will be finished soon.

The pattern is called
by Moda Bakeshop.
It goes together in a snap!

I'm making progress on the
Kaleidoscope kit  
and have one quarter of it sewn together.
The randomness of the fabric placement is so fun.
As I was placing the blocks on my design wall,
I left a few of the same fabrics next to each other.
It gives it more visual interest, I think.

Hopefully this will be a finished top soon.

Happy quilting!

Hi Ramona,
Well, if that's not the best idea I've ever heard of . . . a tree skirt for a wedding gift. I love, love, LOVE that idea and the skirt itself. Your fabric choices are great. ~smile~

More wonderful projects. Darn bloglovin isn't consistent with sending me the daily digest anymore and I almost missed seeing your projects.

Your go-to wedding gift is such a great idea! I remember all too well that first Christmas with a near-empty tree and no tree skirt beneath...
