Christmas Tree Skirt...

Well, this Christmas Quilt Along really gets me motivated to do some Christmas stuff that I've been putting off for years...I've followed Crazy Mom Quilts tutorial and I now have the top done....I used Ivory/Beige solid fabric instead of white.  And all vintage shirts.  I worked on it this week since I have a  busy day today--but here it is!

And here is a pic of Buddy relaxing with Alli....
On a funny note, I found a blog that I'm going to follow called "Crap I've Made".  I think that the name of this blog is so freakin' funny...I can't stop laughing about it.  Why didn't I think of something like that???  Anyhow, a typical Mom making stuff around the house!  This week I'm going to work on binding my big leaf quilt, cutting out some Christmas pieces for a wall quilt...and maybe some aqua and purple?  Hopefully...

By the way, work is much better this year.  The prisoners are actually so nice that I can barely call them prisoners and me the guard...but I will anyhow!! LOL...Happy quilting!


  1. I love the look of that. The plaids are all great and really say "christmas" to me.

  2. I LOVE this quilt along...I've never done one before and it really motivates me to get some stuff done. :D Thanks...

  3. I love the plaids together...what a nice project.

  4. ooh, plaid quilt looks great! I love the fact they're all shirts. I definitely need to use my shirt stash more and do less of the buying.


It is great to hear from you... I had to eliminate anonymous comments due to spamming....sorry!
