Will there be a bound slit so it can be wrapped around a tree?  Or do they have to fit it on the trunk before setting it in the stand?

It's beautiful, by the way!!
It'll have a bound slit with ties or maybe hook and eye to hold the edges.
If I make table toppers, they'll be complete circles without slits.
I've started quilting it, just basic stitching, but it's coming together.

Looking for just the right  fabric to bind the tree skirt, so working on...
Found this fabric, last year, I think; just loved the collection, so had to buy it (paid full-price :o ).  And with the ruler I bought to make the tree skirt, I was able to cut interesting shapes to use.   The side borders will be pieced, the top and bottom borders will be the border print; I may use the same part top and bottom, or I may mix it up a bit.

It's one of my all-time favorite collections that I've found, at least when it comes to non-horse theme collections.

I have one border sewn all around, looking at adding a border to the sides (it's currently long and skinny, so needs to be widened a bit).   Thinking just the animal circle print on the sides for now, not quite sure how I'll splice to length, as the pieces laid out, are the length I have.

The tree skirt is done. It's available for $100 plus s/h.
I don't have a completed picture, yet, but here's the previous picture I took before it was completed.  It has a cream colored binding.

New stash of equine fabric samples arrived today, so I have some new fabrics for planning quilts with, might have to make a bigger quilt with all these pretty pieces.  Will try to get a picture one of these days.
Have new Christmas fabrics coming, so I have some new fabrics to go with what I already have to make some tree skirts.

Just some new fabrics, the horse prints arrived a month ago or more, but just got the pictures taken yesterday (special ordering another horse print for a friend).
The Christmas fabrics just arrived today, so I have something to mix in with the prints I already have to make 5 tree skirts with for next year.

No new picture, but I'm about done with the Outback baby quilt (or wall hanging, maybe) and I made a slightly smaller one with my left-overs.  Will get pictures of both when they are done.

Hedgehogs and wombats and platypus, oh my!!

That looks so inviting Chanda, I like it. I'd hang it in a sunny corner at my place...if the house was done yet.
