This quilted tree skirt was my last skirt order for 2013!  As I was putting the traditional reds & greens together for this piece, it became the "Merry Merry" skirt..I hope the Wyman Family enjoys it for many years to come.  :)Q

Quilted Octagon Christmas Tree Skirt

     I'm finally getting around to posting the quilted Christmas Tree Skirt I made.  Better late than never!  I figure, I have a good start on Christmas for next year.  I have 2 more on the cutting table as well.  These are fun to make, and really give your tree an elegant look for the holidays!  This is a great time to place your order for next year!  For more information, 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!
