French Braid Tree Skirt

The above is a Xmas tree skirt is in a French braid pattern.  The neckline was done in a deep purple to hold a presence on the quilt.  All that is left to finish this masterpiece is the binding on the neckline. 

The pattern was from the book "French Braid Obsession" by Jane Hardy Miller.  The skirt measures 56" in dia. and only took me a year to complete, not because it was difficult, but because I have a problem with completing one thing before jumping on my next project.

Although, this was my first French braid, it will not be my last.  There will be another tree skirt, a wall hanging, a table runner and I think I will try using the French braid as a border on a Japanese wall hanging, I have started.
