Christmas tree pants finished

I finally finished my Christmas Tree Pants (Skirt) from Happy Zombie‘s great tutorial you can find here.

It all started back in January 2013, when I challenged myself to have this done for Christmas 2013. Well, I met my goal and it’s not even Thanksgiving!

Here’s it pieced before making the quilt sandwich.

Here’s the finished product 11 months later.

I’m pretty happy with it. It’s better than the bed sheet I’ve been using the last couple of years and the Martha Stewart skirt from K-Mart that just didn’t do it for me anymore.

Of course, there is always wonky-ness, but that’s how it goes. I cut the scappy binding on the bias because I had never bound anything with curves. Worked out great.

The quilting I would have re-thought. I like the echo quilting around the stars, but some of the straight line quilting is a little boring. This is where my fear of free-motion quilting limits me.

Looking forward to using this under the tree this year!
