Why do they call it Black Friday anyway?
I’m NOT going to any store to go shopping- don’t like crowds but I don’t mind online shopping and Wednesday, Connecting threads started a sale and almost $70 worth of fabrics just jumped into my shopping basket!! (actually almost double did, but then I had to remove about half of it)
We usually decorate for Christmas on Black Friday and I’m sure we’ll be busy doing that today too (so I scheduled this post ahead of time, which I do with most of my posts!
A gentleman from church (Barry will smile that I called him that!)- both husband and wife are quilters and they are like the grandparents for many of the babies at church
anyways, Barry brought this tree skirt to church for me to long arm.
I’ve never done a hexagon like this with the backing trimmed to a hexagon too, so that was a bit tricky! But I did it and I’m sure they’ll like it- I hope.
On the large red triangles I quilted feathers and then loopy lines on any of the background fabric
It’s hard to tell (and that’s why I did it) but I experimented with a large freehand poinsettia on the green triangles.
On the border I did a holly vine all the way around
Hope they like it!
