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!
I think I have some of that fabric...or maybe it just looks very similar! What a great idea for a tree skirt.ReplyDelete
I love these fabrics!! Can't wait to see the finished tree skirt. (And "peas and carrots"? Best fabric name ever!)ReplyDelete
I love this combination of modern design and more traditional fabrics. It's going to be spectacular!ReplyDelete
Cool! Can't wait to see it in person at tomorrow night's meeting!ReplyDelete
Have a great time showing off your fab tree skirt tomorrow night! I'll be working our team fund raiser for the Weekend to End Women's Cancers, so I can't make it AGAIN. boohoo.ReplyDelete
Oooh... I love it! The traditional fabrics really look great in this block!ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to seeing your WIP tomorrow ... I'm starting my tree skirt at a workshop with Krista on Saturday, so I won't have anything to show yet ...ReplyDelete
