Thanks everyone! Yes, finished is the bestest !!! Funny thing is, for years I have been using a white sheet under the tree ,not wanting to buy a tree skirt 'cause I knew I had this one to do. Last year I broke down and purchased an inexpensive felt one.....guess that's what it took to get me motivated! well, that and a new Janome 6300 hubby bought for me this summer! As a newbie, I think I'm getting the hang of this quilting thing....I counted up yesterday, I have 8 UFO's and 4 WIP's and 4 projects laid out to start...what do ya'll call them? Anyway, I' m having a great time with it all! And am so glad I've found this board! Thanks again.
