What else do we call it when someone doesn't finish the Christmas tree skirt they started working on before Christmas (perhaps even before Thanksgiving)? I finally pulled this project off the pile that was sitting on my desk to be completed.
I am certainly not the best quilter, but I do enjoy the challenge every so often. My corners are not perfectly matched, and all I ever really do for quilting is stitch in the ditch that doesn't always end up staying in the ditch......
Back I'm not sure exactly when, I found this free pattern on Craftsy for a small square quilt. It was similar to a pattern I had seen for a Christmas tree skirt, so I decided I would modify the quilt to make a tree skirt. I think I can qualify this as a stash busting project. I did buy the red poinsettia fabric specifically for this project, but all the rest of the things I needed were in my stash. The white was left over muslin I believe from a different tree skirt I made. The gold fabric I have had many yards of for several years and had never done any major projects with. The batting I pieced together from the many scraps I had. While I did have to buy something to complete the project, my stash ended up smaller than I started with.
