    Tree Skirt...a finish!

    I bought this panel years ago, cut it out and basted it and then it sat.....through three moves and a divorce. I finally finished it today. This is the first thing that I have quilted that took more than a partial bobbin full of thread! it's not perfect but it is finished and I'm quite happy with it.

    Thanks everyone! Yes, finished is the bestest !!! Funny thing is, for years I have been using a white sheet under the tree ,not wanting to buy a tree skirt 'cause I knew I had this one to do. Last year I broke down and purchased an inexpensive felt one.....guess that's what it took to get me motivated! well, that and a new Janome 6300 hubby bought for me this summer! As a newbie, I think I'm getting the hang of this quilting thing....I counted up yesterday, I have 8 UFO's and 4 WIP's and 4 projects laid out to start...what do ya'll call them? Anyway, I' m having a great time with it all! And am so glad I've found this board! Thanks again.

    Ahhh Now doesn't that feel like a million bucks? Done is the best feeling ever.
    It will bring you many years of use too. So cute.

    Well done! I love the quilting pattern you chose. I am keeping that one in mind for a future project!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
