tree skirt for christmas

My SIL asked for a tree skirt for christmas.
Ask and you shall receive:


I used Kate Spain's 12 days of Christmas in a Jelly Roll.
Sorted the strips by colors
Made a layout that matched from both ends to the center
Sewed strips together
Cut the big end of the triangles at about 18 inches
Flipped the strips over and cut another at 18 inches
(That's why the layout had to match from both ends to the center:
So that when I flipped and cut the triangles would still match up)
Sewed the triangles together
All but the last 2 so that there was an opening
Cut a whole from center, added a binding and whew.
Finished.

Have a great day :)
