    So I finished my first project last week -- a tree skirt. It was some tough going with the piecing, because there were so many curves, but I figured things out, and it looks okay, I think.

    I've included pictures of the completed tree skirt (well, mostly completed -- I hadn't quite completed the binding on it at the time the picture was taken, but you can't really see that), and the quilting as seen from the back of the tree skirt.

    I've also attached a picture of my work in progress -- it's a Christmas present for my mother-in-law, and I'm really hoping I finish in time!

    Thanks, everyone.

    Shibori, it's a Little Gracie II. I'm using a Bailey 15" on it.
