Christmas Tree Skirt

This was originally posted over at Suture for a Living on December 4, 2009.


I made this Christmas Tree Skirt back in the mid 1990’s, but have used it only once. After I invited the dogs into my life, Christmas trees have pretty much gone out. Their tails are not tree friendly. So I decorate with Poinsettias, wreaths, etc.

The skirt is features red, green, and yellow 8-point stars on a black background. The star blocks are 16 in square. It is machine pieced and quilted. It closes with snaps. The skirt is 30 in from center to outer point.

I’ll be adding this post to SewCalGal’s Virtual Christmas Quilt Show.  I hope you will check it out as I am sure there will be many lovely quilts.

Here is a close shot of one of the star blocks.

I have put the Christmas tree skirt up for sale on Etsy if you are interested.
