Fruitcake under my tree

Pin It Hmmm... this will make two Christmas-themed posts in a row...

I've got a new Bake Shop project!


A really easy to piece, octagonal tree-skirt...

...that Leah, over at Burgundy Buttons, is offering as a kit!
(Kit includes backing, and is only $55... marked down from $72!)





It's cute.



Though not as cute as this guy.



Likes to swing.


Or hang around.


Doubles as a barber cover.

(that's my dad)

I like it. :)



Steiger likes it. 



Hope you do too.

Please show me pics if you make it.

My fruitcake arrived today. I have separated my lights and darks and can not wait to get sewing tomorrow! I have been following you for some time now. I first found you through Moda. Somehow I had the feeling from the start that I had known you for some time. I finally realize your son was the connection. He is in a picture with D who has a husband that has a name also beginning with D and they have a daughter whose name is based on dad's name. I worked with D and taught the daughter in 2nd grade, 4th grade, and again in 8th grade. It is a small world.

Oh my word. The picture with you dad sold me. I could not resist. My fruitcake arrived today. The pastry looked almost too beautiful to dive into, delicious way to package! I have separated my lights and darks and can not wait to get sewing tomorrow!

How big is it? My mom wants a bigger tree skirt for the new house.

traceyjay said...

Ashley - It has a 54" diameter pre-washing.

You can see all the specifics on the tutorial.

Hi! I finally finished my skirt. I started it pretty soon after the tutorial came out. I have posted a pic on the Moda Bake Shop Flickr Group. Hope that is where the pic is supposed to go! I love the skirt! Thanks for designing it! Allison W.

Hi Tracey ~ I have finally started my tree skirt. This is my first time making hourglass blocks and I am really enjoying the process. I feel silly asking what is probably such a basic question, but am I suppose to trim each of my finished blocks to 8.75"? Thank you so much. I hope my tree skirt comes out half as good as yours!
