I'm starting presents early this year-- here's one of the first. 

It's a tree skirt for my brother and his wife.  Pretty easy-- I just drafted up a circle, divided it into 6ths, and added a border.  Just easy quilting in the wedges, and then some free motion swirls and squiggles in the corner.  The only trick, probably, is that I did the whole thing as a circle, and then slashed up the back and trimmed around the hole before binding.  The whole thing probably took about 25 hours of time.

Here's a view of the whole thing:



And here's a detail to show the quilting.



Thanks for looking!
