I had made a tree skirt for my grandparents tree from a class I took many years ago at the Quilters Stash. It is a really pretty teal, beige and white, I chose non-traditional colors. I headed to the Quilters Stash looking for an easy pattern that I could follow by the pictures and that I could use the many fat quarters that I have as the fabric. With the help of Maureen I left with the easiest pattern ever.
I searched through my fat quarter stash and picked some Christmas and winter patterns and others that were just pretty.
I then used a template to cut wedges which brought me to this point. I had 8 sections that looked like this...
I had the perfect material for the border, I had bought this fabric in the US at some point this summer and was saving it for the perfect project, I found that perfect project.
Each wedge had a border sewn on which was much easier then sewing on one big curve border.
I finished the project quickly and because this pattern was so easy I was able to finish it in a few days.
Of coarse then I had to put up my Christmas Tree in order to see what my tree skirt looked like under the tree, and damn it looks amazing, I have never had a tree skirt and it does finish the tree.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
I ordered some Melly and Me patterns and I am waiting for them in the mail, I plan to make a gift for my friends baby for Christmas....that's the plan as of today.
