I couldn't resist.  I was not going to get into the BH mystery this year,  but as I read through her blog,  I couldn't stop myself.  So I have printed out the first three clues, and will continue to print them. When and if I start the  Good Fortune quilt,  I do not know I have to finish up some projects I have in the works.  But I will eventually get to it.  I just couldn't help myself.  I am addicted to scrap quilting.

Tanuel, I was using the Star of Wonder tree skirt pattern that was published in Quiltmaker, November/December 17 issue.  I have made several which you can see on my page.  I am using the last one as a table cover instead of cutting to fit around the tree.   This is my latest scrappie, it is Princess Crown block by Bonnie Hunter.  And this will probably be donated to the Women's shelter as I have not young girls around anymore.   I usually use a cotton batting but this one seems to call for more loft so I think I will use poly to make it softer and more cozy.   Still kicking around whether to add a border or not.  If I have enough of the pink sashing fabric left I will add a small inner and outer border.

Sherri, donating the quilts to the women's shelter is a great cause.  I'm sure they will be loved and appreciated.

What tree skirt pattern are you using?  I have been looking for a tree skirt pattern but can't really find one that jumps out at me as being "the one."

Here are the scrap quilts I am donating to the local Women's shelter.  They are all kid size .. Baby, through crib. And I have several more in my UFO pile to quilt. I am parting with them today, as one woman I work with is a counselor at the shelter so I am sending them with her.  I hope that someone will love them as much as I do.  It feels like parting with a beloved pet or grandchild,  giving these away.  But hopefully someone will get some use out of them, at least more use than the plastic bin in my basement.

Yes, Janet,  I have made a good number of Christmas stockings for family and friends.  I have thought about stocking up on those as well.   For now I am engrossed in tree skirts. But I will surely get bored with this soon and then I may switch to stockings.

Lovely quilts to see.  Sherri, have you made Christmas stockings for everyone?  That might be an alternative to more Christmas tree skirts.

Lovely quilts ladies.  I went through my box of Christmas fabrics,  scraps and left over yardage, and some new that I purchased after Christmas at a bargain price.  So I am making tree skirts.  I do not know why,  I have gifted all my children with tree skirts and I do not put up a tree anymore. But needed something to do with all this xmas fabric.  they will likely go into the granddaughters box for them to go through when I am gone.

LOL Diane Until you said that I didn't realize that was your phone--I just thought you were totally wacked out from doing so many beautiful quilts.  Really Nice collection!!
