A Timely House Warming Gift

. 
I'm so happy for my sister, Marianne!
She and her husband just bought their first house.
There are four sisters in my family. We are all different and still, in a lot of ways, very much the same.
Marianne, is truly a traditionalist in her color preferences and her decorating sense. A Christmas tree skirt should make a great house warming gift for her.
This Kansas Troubles, Holiday Medley has been in my stash for a while waiting for just the right home. I think I found it. The tree skirt is 49"x 49" and I used a pattern by Sweet Jane named Oh Christmas Tree. I did the straight line quilting myself. The binding was my first try at a machine binding. It looks great but I still think I like the relaxation that I get by hand sewing better.

The project came together pretty quickly. It could  easily be done in a weekend, especially if you use pre-cuts.

Hmmm, what next?
