I sewed a new Christmas tree skirt!
It is so whimsical and fun,
trees and houses in the snow:
I made it for my sister who did not want too much red or green,
so lot of blue and pink!
but I realized my white and gold fabric was visible under the blue fabric,
so I did some regular applique on the house panel:
I also decided to stitch each panel on batting,
skipping the quilting part later.
It worked well, making it easy to quilt.
I just stitched each panel to its friend,
trimming the batting at the seam to avoid any bulk.
Then I placed it on top the backing
and just stitched along the seams of each panel.
And finally I bound it with some candy cane print (cut on the bias)
I chose a more traditional print for the backing,
in case my sister decides to embrace red and green for Christmas next year!
