Today, I have the pleasure of introducing you to a beautiful new quilting book written by my blogging friend, Hyacinth Quilts Designs author, Cindy Lammon. If you are wanting to make something with a modern traditional vibe for a fresh Christmas look, then this is the quilt book for you!As I have mentioned before, a new Christmas tree skirt has been on my "want list" for a few years now. Cindy's cute design is just what I had in mind and I shamelessly copied her color scheme with the exception of using an Aneela Hoye print instead of solid white.
It looks difficult, doesn't it? But, clever piecing instructions make for a simple and quick project. The sewing and quilting can all easily be completed in a weekend!
After piecing and quilting, I used a small dessert plate as a pattern to cut out the center circle of the quilt.
After removing the basting stitches from one seam, I was instructed to cut the batting and backing to make the skirt opening.Red Sherbet Pipps binding will look really cute... once I get it sewn on, of course!
I can hardly wait to see my new tree skirt circling a Christmas tree in December! I promise to show you the complete look once I get the binding attached.
and this cutie: Spruced Up... Well, seriously, they are all wonderful!
Cindy and Martingale Publishing are offering a digital version of Simply Modern Christmas to one of my blog readers. It could be you!
