This pattern was done as a tutorial on Donna Jordans’ website. It is a Halloween Table Square Pattern measuring 54 by 54. I thought it would make a nice wall hanging for my porch. I made the pattern. Got it all quilted and went to bind it and notice I had two pieces flipped. Well, I bound it and hung it anyway. I figured as people drive by the house, they won’t be there long enough find the mistake.
I found this quilt kit at the Garden of Quilts in Utah. I was able to use leftover fabric to piece the back making it a reversible table runner. It was my first time using machine appliqué with clear thread and first time machine quilting a bigger project.
This fabric was given to me by the choir director at our church. She said I purchased thinking I would make maybe a tablecloth or runner or placemats. I had it for several years not knowing what to do with it. So I asked her which did she want this year? She said make whatever as I do not want it. It was a applique piece but had match yardage for back. So now it is a Christmas tree skirt.
My daughter moved to another state this past summer. It will be her first Christmas by herself this year. I made this tree skirt for her in her favorite color blue. I used June Taylor quilt as you go batting and Shabby Fabrics Bargello Tree Skirt pattern. The pattern was written for their kit, as I used my own fabrics, I had to number their fabrics and number their pictures for the 16 strip sets. I put it on a slightly bigger backing so that I can quilt snowflakes on my longarm. I quilted digital design "Jessica's Snowflakes" and hand bound. The pattern makes a 40" tree skirt.
