This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

Christmas Tree Skirt Wedges - Juli

Juli was the first person to send me one of her Christmas Tree skirt wedges to work on for the World Wide Crazy Quilters swap.  Juli used tiny patches to piece her wedges which means lots of short seams and lots of variety in the charms, beads and trims.

 This is naked tree skirt wedge.  When I have finished, I will post a photo of the completed wedge to compare the two.  And here is the completed skirt showing the extremely busy treatments of so many tiny seams.  My favourite pieces are the Mother-of-Pearl button snowman and the colourful button trail which I made to balance up with the fabric on the other side of the wedge.
