    My First (and last probably) Tree Skirt

    I finally finished! I made it with this free pattern:
    http://www.sulky.com/project/treeskirt/

    I didn't quilt it with metallic thread though. I just "tied" the yellow squares with a ribbon shaped stitch from my sewing machine. The timing is off on that so my four-sided ribbons ended up three sided, or just a tangle of thread.

    Merry Christmas!

    you did a great job. i made one with this pattern but did not use fabrics that had enough distinction between them. came out kind of muddled. i lost the swirling bargello. oh, well. still looks nice. once it was made decided it was too small for a 10' tree so appliqued a cover over the hole and made it a table topper. works well.
