I made a Christmas tree skirt for my church about 30 years ago. We (some of us church ladies out to lunch) decided that maybe a new skirt was in order. I guess I was the logical volunteer.
I thought about looking for a pattern, but then just decided to go for it. This is what I came up with. I bought two yards of the blue sky-like fabric and some gray and white fat quarters.
The stars are paper pieced.
I'm not a machine quilter, don't claim to be, and don't plan on learning; but sometimes, a sewing project calls for it. I just used my walking foot and masking tape to keep my lines straight. Wish I could have afforded to have a wonderful machine quilter do their magic. Until my ship comes in, for most things I will continue to hand quilt; and only occasionally get out my walking foot. You would think that someone who hand quilts would have the patience to machine quilt, but not me. Hats off to you machine quilters!!
