??Bright?? Idea


Little Quilted Tree Skirt



Used making fabric technique & paper piecing

Should not have cut out the "hole" ... became very unstable & wonky

Thought the orange bulbs looked like goldfish (dead ones) ... so ... zigzagged circles around them & then they looked liked electrified goldfish ... next idea was to "wire" the bulbs ... & brighten up a few snowflakes

Suits my weird little tree to a T

I like the way it looks under your sweet little tree! The bulbs
don't look like goldfish (dead or alive) in the photo, they look
like bulbs! Ha.
Nice job, Margaret!
