Sometime last fall I had pieced this top of Moda charm squares. It languished...but only for a few months! In December I sandwiched and turned it, and then I tied it with pearl cotton. The ties are on the back; that's my preference so that the front looks neat and clean.
I didn't need a tree skirt so I offered it to my mom, who was thrilled. She actually put up two trees this year so the extra skirt was a hit. Here's the skirt under her tree. She won the tree (live) on a call-in radio contest!
Far back, in the corner, you can also see some of my other handiwork. My Black Spruce hanging on the wall, and a pink and black Smokin' quilt on the wicker chair. I was excited to have something else off the "to-do" pile and my mom was excited to have another of my creations. Sounds like a win-win!
When I looked at the calendar I was surprised it was only January 2!
