    Christmas gifts i've made this year

    i've been working on my wool appliqued quilts order & didn't think i would get any (personal) sewing done for the holidays this year- but then-had a couple requests & had to order & wait on some perle cotton for the wool quilts *(bad planning on someone's part) so, i did get some things done- YEA!
    a table runner & 4 placemats for my mother in law- a (long awaited for) really large tree skirt for my daughter & a raggy quilt for my youngest Navy son...i do still need to bind the tree skirt---using the same red as the squares - bindings done will get at that after breakfast- then back to the wool quilts...

    Every thing looks great.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    What is a wool appliqued quilt? I have just finished my first wool wall hanging and am now in love with the wools and how they look when appliqued. So, I am curious as to your wool quilt. BTW, I love your raggy quilt and the tree skirt is awesome. You have done some gorgeous work.

    Love your work, how hard was the tree skirt to make? Looks complicated and time consuming. Was there a pattern? could you PM me?

    the tree skirt is from the book- FRENCH BRAID OBSESSION by Jane Hardy Miller-
    french braids are not difficult- only look like it. the tree skirt was a little more challenging than some mainly because the one in the book uses starting triangles- i chose to use whole squares to make it larger because that's what my daughter wanted- so the binding was a bit more challenging- but it was fun to make- the top only took a saturday of enjoyable sewing- i used spray basting to sandwich it- quilted in the ditch along 3 (every other) star line so the green back has the star outlines on it- then binded it with the same red as the contrasting squares.
