I took a quilting class this summer to make a christmas tree skirt and I just finished it! Thank goodness I started on it many months ago, right? Anywho, I went with solid fabrics in red, white, and green and a chicken wire binding. I LOVE how it turned out -- Charlie Brown reminiscent, yes?
I loaded it on the longarm quilting machine which required a LOT of basting since it was circular. Once on, I quilted in the white and and darker green areas.
