Oh Christmas Tree Skirt

 I’ve had the rounds of a Christmas tree skirt cut out for several years now.  I knew I wanted to do applique on them, but was having trouble figuring out what exactly I wanted to applique; trees, houses, snowmen.  So many ideas; so little time.  So I kept putting it off.  My quilt guild has a thing called the Ott Light.  Each month everyone who is at the meeting has their name put in a drawing.  If you are drawn you have one month to finish a project your ought to have finished by now.  Guess who got drawn last month.  Me!

 It was just the push I needed to finish my tree skirt.  I pulled out my green and brown scrap bins.  Cut up a bunch of trees and trunks.  Arranged them around my circles and got busy appliqueing them down.  Before long I had this cute little top. 

Over the weekend I sandwiched the layers.  I have until noon on Thursday to get my Oh Christmas Tree skirt quilted.  Wish me luck!
