one of the things I'm working on...

I decided to make a Christmas Tree Skirt Pants for my tree this year. Here are my first 4 blocks. You can find the tutorial for the sew-along here.
The fabric I'm using is the leftovers from my Advent Calendar: "Be Merry" by Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs. I'm so glad when I bought this that I bought way more than I originally needed!
The only problem that I have is that I'm a little disappointed how the white stars don't stand out against the white printed fabric, but it's what I had and I love the fabric and it will match my advent calendar, so it will have to do and I know when it's done I'll like it!


  1. Large stitch/quilt your stars with red pearl cotton - it will make them pop.

  2. Love your stars!! :o) (stars are my favorite)
    I like the red hand quilting suggestion!
    Boy would that be stunning! :o)

  3. This is going to look so good!! I love the colors.

  4. When you quilt it up the stars will shine! Love this!

  5. So cute!! Love the Christmas fabric, and I am sure that once you have batting behind your quilt top, the white stars will be perfect!!

  6. I see what you mean about the white...when it's completed, how about quilting a 1/4 inch outline of the star on the inside (on the white) in a colour that will give more dimension to the stars...


I love hearing from comment away!
