While this is supposed to be a tree skirt, I think I may just use it as a table topper. It will finish around 36 inches so I think that would be a nice size for the table. I used the Moda Seasonal Little Gatherings 5 inch squares that I got at Endless Mountains Quiltworks. When I opened the packets, I was surprised by the variety of colors present. Black, several browns and tans, dark reds, lighter reds, purple, greens and oranges. It's half sewn together. I decided to only agonize about placement for less than one day.
Apparently my porch is prime nesting territory this year. In addition to the phoebe shown yesterday, now there is a mourning dove. Usually they nest in the spruce trees, of which I have many. It's always interesting to look out the sewing room window!
That's it for tonight. I may have a full finish to share tomorrow!
