    DJ, really like your tree skirt also. I agree I like the border better than the ruffle.

    I have variations of dark to light, then I have one with light in the middle on this site. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-78496-1.htm

    Hope this helps.

    DJ - I LOVE LOVE LOVE your tree skirt and stockings! So funny that we did the same type of thing with the colors! The button loops you did are fabulous. I'm a beginning quilter, so I was afraid to try a binding on the circle, so I just pillowcased mine. Yours looks so professional!

    I was also thinking that I needed to make something with the opposite wedges - although I was thinking scrappy table runner - but your stockings give me ideas... hmmmmm....

    Very nice skirt, I think it looks better without the ruffle. Your tree will look beautiful with this.

    Lara, question: since you used 9 fabrics instead of the 4 in original pattern I assume you used each fabric once in the strip sets. Did you just move the first 4 down (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 then 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,1 etc). If not would you mind sharing you method? If it shouldn't go here a PM if you have time to unchain from your machine and don't mind. Thanks!

    I think it's OK to share here - I guess I'll find out if it's not!

    Yes, I used each fabric once in each set of 9 strips and I prepared 9 sets of strips. Half of the WOF is more than enough for each set because you cut only 4 wedges from each set of strips. The sets are ordered as follows:

    123456789
    234567891
    345678912
    456789123
    567891234
    678912345
    789123456
    891234567
    912345678

    Hopefully that makes sense with the pattern. If you do it this way, you need enough fabric to cut 5 WOF strips of each of nine colors. You'll have lots left over - reverse wedges and end pieces - to make a table runner or stockings or something.

    I hope you do it! I'd love to see it!

    Thanks for Sharing I've made 2 Bargello wall hangings so this makes complete sense. Stockings may also come of this, will need to be for next year as there is NO room in the race to finish Christmas list. I may wait until after I return from Thailand & China silks & batiks to add some spice! 4 of us leading a mission trip from our school. 20 high school students woohoo it's going to be awesome!

    Just beautiful! What a great job you did. I'm sure it is even more beautiful in person.
