Christmas tree skirt by Ecormack
Home & Decoration
My daughter is newly married and wanted a tree skirt for her tree. I asked her to go on Pinterest and see if there was anything she liked and she settled on this one, made using a tutorial over at Sew Crafty Jess.The fabric (top, back, and binding) all came from my stash; it feels good to be using what I have. Fat quarters are a little too small for this project but I tend to collect in 1/2 yard pieces so I was okay (whew!). She wanted "traditional" reds and greens so there is a little bit of everything in there. The binding is a red, green, and blue print on white from Bliss and I think it works perfectly in this project. It took me approximately 6 hours on Saturday to cut, piece, baste, and quilt the tree skirt. It took me another 3 1/2 hours on Sunday afternoon to stitch the binding down to the back by hand, in case anybody is wondering about times. The tutorial is excellent and the whole project is very straightforward to complete.
