Regardless this has been my new work in progress. I got this idea from a quilt pattern I saw in McCall's Quilting. It was several years ago, the pattern was called Merry-go-round. The quilter used 2.5 inch strips sewn together to cut out her triangle pieces. When I saw the pattern I thought that the triangles would make beautiful Christmas trees. Since I had been looking for an idea for a Christmas tree skirt I thought this the perfect opportunity to play.
Armed with piles and piles of green triangles I had cut out a year (or more) ago I started sorting. My plan, as much as it was, was to make this a scrappy quilt project. As I laid out options I decided it needed to be somewhat cohesive, yet scrappy. Sewing together like triangles I ended up with a stack of trapezoids.
Now we play....
Not enough here for the size I need
Going for modern here. and Failing?
Still working on a modern setting.
Hmm. More traditional perhaps?
Sort of looks like a green snowflake?
I am sure this will resemble a tree skirt eventually, right?
