Tree Skirt Ta-dah!! & a Winner!!!!

I've finished my tree skirt!! 
I started this on Tuesday when I was stuck in waiting for the UPS man, I was unable to finish the aprons as I'd ran out of the red thread and remembered that I had downloaded this pattern. I had seen all the amazing blog posts during the Sew Seasonal blog hop and knew just what I wanted to make with them, so got cracking on the blocks. I didn't enlarge them, but went with the 5" size, as it meant that I could have more going around the bottom of the tree skirt and wouldn't have to pick between my favourites! 
The pattern was super simple to follow and as I went with the small size it enabled me to use lots of my tiny scraps. 
I had my first go at FMQ on it, and I don't think it's too terrible!! I got stuck in a few points and have crossed over threads a couple of times. 
It was a family discussion as to how big the hole should be and now i'm a little worried that it's too big, but I'll have to wait till we get the tree stand down next weekend!! 
And now to the winner of my 100th Post Giveaway! 
Thank to all that entered and all those new followers out there, but Mr Random picked..........
I didn't know how to get this on the post, so took a photo!!! So low tech!
