It’s Christmas in my mailbox

I’m the lead designer for the Mississippi Valley Quilters Guild Christmas tree for the Festival of Trees this year.

For those of you who aren’t in the Quad-Cities, the Festival of Trees is a fundraiser for Quad-City Arts in which artists design Christmas trees, stockings, wreaths, hearths and entire rooms with Christmas decorations of their own creation. Then the Christmas decorations are auctioned off to benefit arts programing in the Quad-Cities.

Part of my duties include making a Christmas tree skirt. Quilting By-You, LLC., is the benefactor for the tree, and co-owner Charlene Thode suggested Judy Niemeyer’s Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt pattern. I loved it and today it arrived in my mailbox.

I’m so excited to dig into all these paper pieced points and curved seams. I know, I’m a gluten for punishment.
