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.

Maire's and Jacque's Christmas Tree Skirt Wedges finished

Here are the last of the Christmas Tree Skirt Wedges finished.  I put the last stitches in Maire's today at work. It has kept my workmates interested in the end results as they see the naked wedges and watch them slowly get covered in beads, stitching, charms and trims until they are completed and the next day I turn up with the next one.

I started with putting the sparkly red ribbon and stitched edge across the middle of the huge olive green patch in the centre of the wedge then added the olive green lace motif which I cut in half, spread across the centre of the ribbon and stitched on the heated sequinned motif. That broke up the large expanse of one colour.  At the top I have put Santa arrived under the Australian skies with the Southern Cross dominant and down the bottom I have snow flakes and swags with lots of gold and silver charms suspended form them.

Here is Jacque's Christmas tree skirt wedges.  Jacque made diamonds and triangles with curved edges. She  is going to join the diamonds which all have a blank piece at the top so she can add a crocheted doily which her grandmother made which has eight petals. Then in between the diamonds at the bottom she is going to insert the triangles which will splay out - should look great when it is done.
