Scrappy Christmas Tree skirt

What are you most proud of? I added sentiments, embroidered all around the edges. It's bright, colorful & very pretty. And I didn't have to buy any additional fabric, I used what I had left over from other projects. What advice would you give someone starting this project? There are no rules for this. Just do it. Make it up as you go along.

Q&A with NiceThreads

khovie asked:
I like your idea. Love the little starts that you added! It makes the skirt!
NiceThreads answered:
Thank you. I think stars are bright & happy. My son wants me to make one with round ornaments instead of the stars & fill some of the ornaments with the logos of his favorate sports teams.

Please add finished width to information.
NiceThreads answered:
I gave this to my daughter. It was for a full size tree so seems to me it wasabout 45" across.
melludwig asked:
Is there a way to find the pattern ?
NiceThreads answered:
No Pattern, I started with a wedge shape than added borders from scraps and added the stars until I liked it. But I would not do it this way again, it was very difficult to handle with the Opening & "hole" already there. I now complete the skirt like a quilt, then slice & cut the hole out and bind it as the last step. You can get the same effect by starting with a sq. then slicing off the corners and adding borders.
