Holly Jolly Tree Skirt


Holly Jolly Tree Skirt Pattern

As promised, here is more info on the tree skirt pattern I was working on last week.  Sorry for the delay – my family and I spend a few delightful days in Disneyland this week – a much needed break!


Holly Jolly Tree Skirt

This is a pieced (no templates!) tree skirt that is made using 6 of your favorite Christmas prints.  It has a backing and is quilted and bound just like a regular quilt.  (I have a step-by-step tutorial for doing the binding on these tricky points – it’s not tough at all!)

Three ribbon ties help to keep the skirt in place around your tree:

The finished tree skirt measures 54” in diameter across the widest point. 

Right now I have pdf patterns available for purchase in my pattern shop as well as my etsy shop.  If you are interested in a paper version of the pattern send me an email and I can get that for you.

  2. I just pieced my tree skirt this evening, and it was so slick and easy, with your awesome pattern! I can't wait to get it all quilted and bound now!!!

  3. What kind of ruler are you using to measure the angles? I did a practice round on paper using a quilting ruler and it came out a little off. Plus it was hard to line up the angles because of where they are on my ruler. Thanks!
