    Here's some pics of a Christmas tree skirt that I finished last night. I used various Christmas fabrics that I picked out at the LQS and then made up my own pattern based on a pinwheel block. It measures 63" x 63". I just did stitch-in-the-ditch quilting on it along all of the seams.

    Very nice Eddie - you must have a BIG tree for this skirt to fit under. :)

    Okay, seriously, Eddie, you must be some kind of quilting savant! I know you haven't been doing it for long, but you are just FEARLESS, and your work is always beautiful! I'll bet you can go into the kitchen and just start throwing things together, and it always tastes good! I'm a recipe cook, and I quilt mostly from printed patterns.

    NOTE TO EDDIE'S WIFE: Get him EQ software for Christmas! Once he has it, there will be no stopping this man!

    so, please explain EQ softwear. electronic quilter? you know a yr or so ago on t.v. i was watching a quilting show, and she opened up the program, and talked about entering the block size, reversing the pattarn. by this i mean the layout of the quilt blocks. is anyone familiar with this softwear? and that if you made a certain size 4 patch the 4 patch on diagonal blocks will be this size. etc.

    Hey, that's gorgeous.

    Love the random look of the block placement, and it sure complements your tree!

    Gorgeous Eddie. Your house should be showcased with all these new Christmas quilts, wall hanging, & tree skirt. Where are you getting all this inspiration?

    Hi SewNso,

    The programs differ based on the which ones you purchase, but most all of them allow you to select block styles, and make them whatever size you want, and do all kinds of interesting things with them to create a custom pattern that is just what you want. I'm hoping I can drop enough hints about EQ6 to my wife that it ends up under the tree for me at Christmas. :)
