I started a tradition of gifting tree skirts to nephews and nieces when they marry. This year I had two weddings - May and November. I'm proud to say I have both skirts finished! I wanted to give them at Thanksgiving so they could be used this year.
|This is the third time I've used this pattern. Diamond Log Cabin blocks.|
6 vertical, 6 horizontal. Different fabric combinations make it look different.
|I tried a different version of a feather. Curls.|
|The bride requested black, gold, and cream as her colors.|
|I first saw this design on Pinterest. I was trying to figure out the piecing|
process when I found out it's in one of the French Braid books by Jane Hardy Miller.
|I originally purchased the Christmas boot fabric as a possible backing.|
I'm glad I was able to use it on the front of the skirt.
FYI: The bride and attendants wore boots for the ceremony.
I thought this was perfect for them
|I used the same curly feather in one round, a holly leaf in one, |
and generic fills in the rest.
I'm working on a T-shirt quilt for a friend. I said I would make it after I retired - 5+ years ago! I finally got started when I realized I could get rid of two boxes from the studio if I just got it done.
Today I embroidered three labels: Two for the tree skirts and the other for a friend. I need to keep practicing the process until it becomes natural.
Thanks for checking in.
