Christmas Tree Skirt for Kelly

One of my daughters college roommates was supposed to be
getting married next month.
As is tradition for me,
I started on her Christmas tree skirt as her wedding gift.
Then, this past weekend, they had to postpone the wedding.
I thought about putting the tree skirt aside,
but why do that?
Get it done and checked off of my list.

This pattern was on Moda Bake Shop,
but is no longer there.

Here is a link to the pattern on another site.
I've used it a number of times
and love how quickly it goes together
and how it shows the fabrics so nicely.

There is metallic gold in a number of the fabrics,
giving them a richness and sparkle.


This was made with a layer cake, but I don't remember which one.
The backing fabric is from the same line
and I didn't remember that I had it!

Back when the isolation time started, 
I did a big purge and clean of my hidey hole.
All except the cabinet where my Christmas fabrics are stored.
Well, while I was looking for binding fabric,
a huge pile of fabrics fell out onto the floor.
It was time to clean this cabinet.
My mom gave me her Christmas fabrics years ago
and there are some that date back to 1991!!
Now that they are organized and neat,
I know what I have and HOW MUCH I HAVE!!
(smack my head!)
This year everyone is getting Christmas quilts... or 3!

Happy Quilting!
Be well and be safe.

Pretty Christmas tree skirt. Glad you got your Christmas fabrics organized. Every time I organize, I find fabric that I wish I had remembered I had for another project. Happy sewing.!

You got it done! I hope that the couple are able to continue with their wedding plans. This is such a hard time for events and having things cancelled. No matter when I am sure they will love their tree skirt.

Those beautiful Christmas fabrics are hard to resist each year, aren't they? I'm thinking the ones you used in this tree skirt look like Hoffman? Great job; the bride and groom are sure to love their tree skirt!

Sometimes it takes a moment like that fabric falling to realize something needs to change. I do that a LOT! Your tree skirt is sure pretty. Too bad the pattern is not available.

I just ran across your blog and am smitten! I'm getting back into quilting after 15 or so years, and really only dabbled at it then. You are amazing and prolific, too! Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos and comments - you have motivated and encouraged me tremendously.
