"I really like this "tropical" take on the tree skirt! Perfect for the Hawaiian friend!"

Batik Christmas tree skirt

Again, using Tula Pink's Moxie design, but adding another row and strip, I made several tree skirts for family and friends. This particular one was for a friend in Hawaii who wanted something tropical feeling.

Why do you quilt?

Do you have a website?

I'm a novice quilter married to a traveling US Navy Sailor and we have 3 adorable kids. I've been sewing since High School but fell in love with the art of quilting about 6 years ago during a trip to Wisconsin. Since then, I've been practicing and practicing and I have a long way to go still, but I absolutely love learning and exploring new techniques.  Sewing and quilting are my therapy, it gets me through the long months of deployment.
