    Christmas 2013

    My daughter requested I make her a Christmas tree skirt that has a crazy quilt look to it. Figured if I didn't get to working on it, I would find myself in a panic later on. Finished it today. Pretty happy with the way it turned out.

    Oh my goodness, you have a Christmas project done already & it is a beautiful tree skirt. I am jealous of your progress for this coming year. Guess I had better get busy too!! Very nice work.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Very nice! I like to get a head start on my projects also - I've been taking one day a month to sew American Girl doll clothes for my granddaughters for Christmas. Makes life a little less hectic in December.

    Very, very pretty. Ironic that I am starting a tree skirt today for a wedding present in June. I am not as prepared as you are.

    Lovely tree skirt. I love crazy quilts! You gave me the motivation to start on a tree skirt that I want to make for my sister for Christmas! It will probably take me that long too!

    To Quilter65... I have a friend that gives a Christmas tree skirt and some ornaments as a wedding gift. She said most young couples don't think of that need till the holiday rolls around. Her thoughtful gift gives them a head-start.

    NanaCindyLou... this one took me a couple of months (not steady working). The most time consuming part was making the squares.

    Thank y'all for your encouragement.
