Christmas tree skirt

Christmas is coming ever nearer and whilst none of us (including me) want to be reminded of it, it is unavoidable. In this month Quilt Now magazine I have another Christmas project for you to try out and that is a Christmas tree skirt.

I really loved making this tree skirt because although it looks complicated it is actually quite easy. I used a fat eights bundle from Kate Spatin's new Christmas collection 'Solstice' which was perfect for the job. Christmassy, yet bright and light.

I quilted in dense lines along the shape of the wedges and added bias binding in a rich green to give the skirt the right frame.

I am also teaching this tree skirt at the Village Haberdashery in November ! So check it out if you want to learn how to make it.

Thank you for your comments! I love reading them and will answer every question you have on my projects. But I have a very busy daytime job and am therefore not able to thank each and every comment. Please don't be offended if I won't reply.
