    French Braid Tree Skirt

    Here's my Christmas quilt for this year, from "French Braid Obsession", a book by Jane Miller.

    This is my first attempt at a French Braid; and I'm pretty happy with it. Quilting is just SITD, and I used a decorative stitch to create the lines in the outer triangles.

    That's gorgeous! I want to make a tree skirt someday but just seldom get around to making things for myself. I need to break that bad habit. I like your decorative stitches. Looks like you used a glitzy metallic thread.

    That’s neat! I like the gold stitches you did in the triangles- great use of decorative stitches!

    I am in awe of your beautful work. I tried to make one using 60 degree triangles one year. It was presentable, but not near as beautiful as yours.
    I made it to the mtns and love every minute of it!

    Great tree shirt. Your straight lines really show up good.

    Beautiful! Like your decorative stitch and the contrast binding sets the whole thing off nicely.

    Great job...I like the pattern and your placement of fabrics. It will look awesome under the tree.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
