    So I finished my first project last week -- a tree skirt. It was some tough going with the piecing, because there were so many curves, but I figured things out, and it looks okay, I think.

    I've included pictures of the completed tree skirt (well, mostly completed -- I hadn't quite completed the binding on it at the time the picture was taken, but you can't really see that), and the quilting as seen from the back of the tree skirt.

    I've also attached a picture of my work in progress -- it's a Christmas present for my mother-in-law, and I'm really hoping I finish in time!

    Thanks, everyone.

    Shibori, it's a Little Gracie II. I'm using a Bailey 15" on it.

    After looking at your pictures I can say with all assurance that you are NOT allowed to call yourself a newbie! :lol: Those are great!

    I love the skirt one. I'd never have thought that you were a newbie. Great work.

    I love the tree skirt. It is a horrible shame to cover it with presents. maybe they can sit on the table instead!
