The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

I love this time of the year.  The weather is getting colder and my favorite holiday is right around the corner. There is just no other season better than Christmas! So with that being said, this was the perfect time to begin another project. We needed a new Christmas tree skirt.  Pretty Prudent had a tutorial on a beautiful, ruffly (is that a word?) one. I did things a little different.  There was no way I was going to manually do all that gathering. I got out my ruffle foot, some leftover fabrics from previous projects and got to work.  I don't know what size my strips ended up, but I did have to add 1 extra strip to row 5 and 2 strips to row 6.  Once I made all my gathers and formed each row of strips, I found it easier to pin them to the felt. I just didn't trust myself.  I'll let you guys know in a few days how it all turns out. Happy quilting!
