Wow Two Posts in One Day

Can you believe it! I wanted to participate in Park City Girls Quilt Festival-Fall 2009 so here we go. She asks that you display your favorite quilt and right now that is a tree skirt I designed and made a few years ago. At the time I wanted to make very formal, glitzy tree skirt for my formal living room tree. I couldn't find a pattern I liked so I decided to make one up and it actually worked. I also love Christmas fabric that has gold metallic in it so I was able to accent that with metallic gold bias. The fabric is Hoffman. I hope you like it.

Here is a detail picture.

I love it. Beautiful Christmas colors. Hope I will make a tree skirt one day. The hubby is in the military and he's been deployed or we travel to visit family for Christmas, so we've never put up a tree or stockings. I will have to make a tree skirt & stockings to celebrate the occasion... you've inspired me... I, however, will actually need a pattern :)
