As promised...Christmas Tree Quilt

I added the stripped fabric to make it slightly bigger to match the size of the border blocks.
I'm very happy with the way the Walmart fabric looks in these blocks
I still have the buttons and beads add. And during lunch I ran over to Joann's and found this really cool itsy bitsy trim.

Mine sure looks different than the original.

Here's the pattern again.

I've also been busy with real a Christmas Tree.
My daughter always wants a tree as high as the ceiling.  Kids!  Don't they realize I would have to get on a super tall ladder to decorate it?  So I picked the spot were the ceiling is the lowest.  (Ha! Don't those kids know we (parents) are smarter than they are!)
Here's our tree this year.

I love having a Christmas Tree in the house.

Merry Christmas and Happy Sewing,


  1. How sweet Linda! I just love it and your tree is just grand! Merry Christmas to you as well!

  2. Cool tree! And what a cute Christmas quilt.. I think yours looks better than the pattern.. :o) Happy Holidays!

  3. Both trees are very festive. Like you stripped inner border, looks better than the original pattern. Nice to have a finish before Christmas.

  4. Love both trees! Now will you come out and put my tree up? Pretty please? Your stripey border is awesome.

  5. Your Christmas quilt is just darling! I like yours better than the original. The center panel is just perfect!

  6. Lovely tree! The quilt looks fantastic, I think the walmart fabric is perfect!

  7. Your little quilt turned out cute. Can't wait to see how you embellish it. Nice tree (IRL), too!
