I couldn't resist this fabric today. In the latest Quilts and More magazine, there is a tree skirt using these fabrics. It is called Merry-Go-Round. I have been using an old crocheted shawl around my tree. Not very good looking but it works. I really liked the looks of this tree skirt and got carried away and purchased enough to make one for us and one for my daughter.
Now I just need to find time to make them.
We had a great day at the quilt shop today. Two van loads of ladies that were on their way from Florida to a quilting retreat came by and ran us ragged for about an hour. They were really having a lot of fun. Made me want to jump in their van and go with them. They planned on hitting 17 quilt shops by the time they got home.
We also had a meeting of the Elm Creek Club and talked about next year's project. If you haven't read the books by Jennifer Chiaverini, I highly recommend them. We are going to work on the quilt shown here. There are 140 6-inch blocks and it will be a long-term project. It should be a lot of fun - just have to decide what fabrics to use.
