    Christmas Tree Quilt Top Completed

    Well it's finnished and not sure if I want a border on it?? I used a white with silver sparkles on it for the star and hand stitched it with blanket stitch.

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    How good that must feel to have some Christmas already completed. I love the tree and your fabric choices. I think the polka dots are the perfect little pop for that quilt.

    This is very innovative. I can't wait to see how you finish. If you don't mind, I would like . you to put a border on it.

    That is very nice and looks like Christmas so much. I personally would put a border on it but it is your quilt. Please let us know what you decide.

    I think a red border would frame it up nicely but you could go without one. Lovely top!

    Very pretty, great colors. I would probably use the green for a border.

    Very pretty! I think I would add some heavy metallic gold or silver stitching around the edges of the star to make it stand out more. You sure are ahead of the game for Christmas!
