    Tree's Up! Lights On! (name of quilt pattern)

    I picked this pattern up at the LQS. I just love it. I have already made two and am in the process of making one more. The second one I put a little green frame next to the binding. I dont know what you call it. I cut a 1" piece then folded it in half and sewed it on when I sewed the binding. Of course I was really careful but dont know why some of it shows more is some places than others....oh well. None of my quilts are perfect and I dont believe they will ever be but I have so much fun sewing them and then giving them away.

    I love what you've done. So whimsical w the fabric choices. Is it just me or can you picture this in other colors, not as trees but a thin clothing "fashion–ista". . . Wide floppy hat, flared skirt and skinny legs? I would love to try that for GD.

    I have that pattern but haven't made it yet. You have some terrific fabric choices in it! And your flange adds a wonderful spark.

    I really like this quilt! Your color choices blend well. What is the name of the pattern? I would love to do this for Christmas (not Xmas!) 2012. I am in the process of making a Christmas tree wall hanging for my living room as I am not putting up a tree this year.

    Absolutely adorable!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
