Tree skirt, large topper, small topper, and table runner pattern! Something for everyone! I've been designing quilt patterns for eight years, and for eight years I have wanted to design one that would work as a tree skirt. For eight years ideas have flit into my head, stayed long enough to prove they were too complicated, and flit back out, leaving me slightly depressed and wondering if I would ever come up with something that fit my style and "fun over fuss" philosophy. Somehow the circles craze in quilting today was what I needed to finally hit upon inspiration that stuck and kept growing into "Ripple Effect". Machine applique means no curved piecing; a great, quick project to highlight some of your favorite fabrics.
