    Christmas Tree...by Charisma

    Ok a few years back I started this quilts..like 4-5...then I think about 2 years ago I finally put the borders on....bought backing fabrics...This poor quilt sat in a bin waiting to be quilted.

    The pattern is a Jodi Barrows pattern and you use her special ruler for square in a square. It makes each block come out absolutely perfect! I only use her ruler now for S-N-S because I bought this ruler and book. I am not a ruler queen...but I do use this one.
    So anyway....Here is my Christmas Tree.
    I used all fabrics with gold metallic...so I also quilted it with gold metallic thread. Love it! It's so sparkly!

    Thanks so much for looking!

    I'm glad you got it finished. Much too cute to sit in a bin! Nice job, as always!
    If I'm too busy to quilt, something else has to go.

    Beautiful !!!! Jodie Barrows was in Albuquerque recently and did a presentation/trunk showing at one of our quilt shops and I also bought some of her books, rulers, and kits. Can't wait to do some. Thanks for showing us!
