    Recently Ladybug 1938 asked about a Tree Skirt (http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-122300-1.htm). This isn't a tutorial, but pics of a Tree Skirt I made from a regular size Lone Start quilt pattern.

    This was mine that I gave to a grand dgtr when I quit putting up a tree each year. She took pics for me. I had made several others that were given away, but didn't have a pic of them.

    It is finished w/Prairie Points (the previous ones were finished w/coordinating binding). It is hand quilted - the 'star' is in the ditch, the muslin triangles a 1" grid around a quilted Christmas 'ornament' type pattern in each of the 8 - i.e.; bells, drum, wooden soldier, etc. Traci didn't get a close up pic of the quilting.

    Hope this might give someone an idea for a new Tree Skirt for this year. I know several commented it just gets covered up w/presents. We always put ours up the week end after Thanksgiving & left it up till New Years, so the 'quilt' is only covered up a few days. We didn't have presents out TOO early to tempt little hands. ;-)

    Have a blessed day & may all your quilts be filled w/love. :lol:

    That is so pretty, it would be a shame to cover it with gifts.

    Thanks Kathy - just saw the weather rpt & says your area can expect BAD weather today - hows it doing so far?? Showing an alert area from Southern KS clear down to Dallas area.

    Keeping all in my prayers that the cell they are talking about doesn't end up as severe as the 1 in Joplin.

    Be safe
