Autumn Blessing’s Quilted Tree Skirt October 1, 2016

     This is my Fall tree skirt, and I love it!  Yes, I do leave a tree up year round in my foyer, and I decorate it for each holiday or season. This heirloom tree skirt will have a new dated leaf on it each year. I’m a little behind on my leaves, but I will catch up to them soon.

Quilted Tree Skirt – Snowman Gatherings December 10, 2014

    This is the "Snowman Gatherings Tree Skirt".  The fabric for this quilted tree skirt was purchased at Moda.  I absolutely love it!  All that's left to do on this heirloom skirt is the dated embroidery that can be placed on each year to help keep the memories of the year alive everytime you take out your skirt.  🙂  The size of this custom skirt was completed at 30" around at the widest points.  All custom skirts can be made to be the perfect fit for that special place in your home.  Contact me at:  susan@yankeebellecreations.com

This is a GREAT tutorial by Missour Star Quilt Company:  http://quiltingtutorials.com/all/quilt-adorable-christmas-tree-skirt/

Fabric needed for this 54" octagon tree skirt:

– (81)  – 5" squares  
I used:  Christmas Fun by Lynette Anderson for Lecien Fabrics

– 1/2 yard of fabric was used the 1st border around the octagon.  I cut those in 3" strips

– 1 yard of fabric was used for 2nd border around the octagon.  I cut those in 5" strips

– 1/2 yard of fabric was used to make the binding for the skirt.  Make sure to cut on the bias.

I chose to monogram our name, the year the skirt was made, and words we associate with Christmas!
