I have a 5’ tall country style artificial Christmas tree in my family room with a long skinny bare trunk that needed a new little tree skirt!
So, I pulled out some bright fun modern Christmas prints from the stash closet…
I cut one 5” strip cross-grain on eight different fabrics.
I sub-cut those strips into 5” squares.
I made 4 big nine patches using 2 fabrics for each.
I sewed then together, pinned the backing and batting and top together
and quilted it with a simple meander using a red and green variegated thread.
I cut a 3” circle from the very center, trimmed the edges and cut off the corners.
I made the binding from a fun green and red striped fabric and sewed it all around the edges, and hand sewed it down while watching TV last night!
Woo hoo! I love it there!! Don’t you?
What did you do this weekend?
