I've had these Moda Maison de Noel fabrics around for a while, always intending to make a Christmas Tree Skirt out of them but never really finding the right inspiration.
The VMQG challenge for November/December is to make a Tree Skirt, so I hemmed and hawed but today, when I saw That Girl's You + Me quilt, I knew I had a design. I used Jennifer's awesome Cross Block Tutorial. (If you cut a 6" WOF strip from two contrasting fabrics, you can make two whole blocks with very little fabric waste).
I kind of like how the modern block contrasts with the traditional-style fabric:
Tomorrow night, I'll trim them and put together the top so I can bring the WIP in for Show and Tell at Guild on Thursday. Whee! I love quick projects!
P.S. I'm joining Lee over at Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesdays. Come over and check it out!
