Christmas Mystery Reveal...

You thought I'd forgotten about you, didn't you??? Nope, in fact, I am going to go ahead and reveal because that is the only way you can get your squares put together correctly.

Before I do, you can go to Google and type in "Christmas Tree Quilt", click on images, and you will get at least a dozen quilts very similar to this.  They are all lovely.

So, here is the layout diagram.  The colors are chosen just to suggest randomness, I did not follow specific placement for any fabric, just made sure duplicates  weren't too close to each other.

 Here is my tree.  I am very happy with how it came out. 
I considered doing a scrappy border with my left over greens and even considered adding some red ornaments in there but when auditioned next to the quilt, I settled on a simple 2 1/2 inch border of the lightest red.  Then I will bind it in one of the lighter greens.

If you joined my mystery, or if you already have created a lovely tree, I would love to see the pictures.  Send me a link or email me the picture and let me know if I can share it with my blog friends.

Happy Stitching everyone and Happy Holidays too!
