Penrose Tile Quilt: Christmas Tree Skirt - Construction Phase

The trick with this design is the combination of machine piecing with paper piecing.  Instead of paper piecing each patch, I machine piece the patches that make up each rhombus and paper piece the rhombi.

Here's how I machine pieced the fat rhombi:

This is a good way to make 40 thin rhombi at one time:

Once all the rhombi have been machine pieced, they are ready to be basted onto the paper and hand assembled.
