    This is my first attempt at using the 10 degree wedge. I used 12 different fabrics. Batting is doubled which makes it look puffier. This is a Christmas tree skirt for my nephew who is getting married June 1. I strip pieced the strata and then cut and assembled. Hope you like it. And, I am actually finished with something before the deadline. Yeah!

    Very nice. I have been looking at the ruler. Might pick it up soon.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I love your skirt. I made one for this past Christmas. You have motivated me to make another - good time to get started.

    Great tree skirt! Gives me ideas. I have the 9 and 10 degree wedge rulers, but haven't made anything with them in a while. (Forgot....apron in earlier post used one.) Have several pattern books for them so need to pull them out and get busy. Have a few months till xmas...as slow as I am, that might give me time! lol

    Absolutely gorgeous. They will love it a long time. They will think of you every time they use it.
