DECEMBER'S THROWBACK THURSDAY

I made this quilt way back in 1984 -- it's not technically a Christmas quilt, but it is red and green!  It is 60" X 87" and is machine pieced and hand quilted.
It is an old star pattern called 1904 Star.  My paternal grandparents were married in 1904, so I named the quilt '1904 Revisited'.

Because of its coloration, we have used it as a tree skirt for several years.

That is such a pretty quilt. I would never have thought to use a quilt as a tree skirt but now you've given me an idea for my tree.

The quilt might not technically be a Christmas quilt, but it seems you get great used out of it at Christmas! :)
