Trim the Tree

Snow came early to New England this year so I used it as an opportunity to hide away in my studio and make something.  I still have a ton of scraps left from various Kate Spain holiday collections so I dragged those out and got started.

This is a great Christmas Tree pattern by Jitka Designs.  The pieces are tiny but since it's paper pieced it's not a problem to get everything lined up.

Tuesday we had a snow day so I was back at it.  I kept the quilting simple and just did a simple grid.  It's almost soothing to just power thru all those straight lines.

And now my foyer is that much more festive!

  1. You're the queen of pillow making in my book, Alice! My family mistreats pillows. They would not be worthy of such loveliness!

    I'm familiar with this pattern and hope to tackle it in 2021? 2022? Ack -- too many Christmas project, too little time!
