Quilter's Haven Christmas Challenge

Quilter's Haven in Moose Jaw, SK
 is
 having a Christmas Challenge this month
 
This is the fabric that was in the bag...now what to make??
 

It had to incorporate a 9 patch, 2 flying geese and 3 HST's
 
I had tried the Itsy Bitsy Twister Ruler at Retreat
 
 
 
I wondered what a Christmas tree might look like....
 


 
I did a ROUGH sketch hoping it might work....


Started sewing and cutting and sewing again....

 
And before you know it.... I was liking the result!!
 
 
 
Here is my finished project which is in the mail as we speak....

 
The presents in the corners are my required components...
 
I made mine before going to Vegas so I was quite suprised to see this one at the shophop!!
 
 
Let's just say that my tree is considerable more PRIMITIVE!!
 
Christa
