I decided to make one for my mom, mostly because she has wanted a homemade tree skirt (or pants) for a few years now. I am also making one for my sister. Both are in progress between finals grading and setting up my winter course. The red is for my sister and the blue is for mommers.
This is what the block will look like. I'm working on getting the blocks done. This blue/white fabric has micro glitter on it. Sparkles! It is kind of a pain to work with - I think it is more stretchy than most cottons. Or I just don't like bias seams. Or I need to use more starch. :)
