    Christmas Tree Skirt Tutorial

    You can fine the ruler at a LQS. Most of them have them. Mine is the 9 degree ruler, but my friend has a 10 degree ruler. Here is a picture of the skirt I gave as a wedding gift.

    I made one of the spiral table runners and the instructions were great. If i could figure out how to i'd put a picture in here. Maybe it'll show. I have 2 tree skirts cut out but was struggling with them. This will really help. Thanks

    This is so pretty! I think a Christmas tree skirt would make an excellent wedding present. I'm always in the mood for Christmas! Thank you for sharing this.

    First of all, you will need the correct ruler. I use Marilyn Doheny's 9 degree circle wedge ruler. In order to get a circle, you will need 40 wedges. I've also seen a 10 degree ruler at my LQS. If you use that ruler, you would need 36 wedges for your circle.

    You will need a total of about two yards of assorted fabrics for the top, 2 yards of fabric for the back, 2/3 yard of fabric for the binding, and a 54 square of any kind of batting. Please note that all seams are 1/4. This makes a 50 tree skirt.

    For this skirt, I'm using seven fabrics. To the left of the fabric is the size of each. Each of these is cut by the width of the fabric, then they are sewn together lengthwise. When you are done, you will have one panel that should measure approximately 20-22 inches by 42 inches. You will need three panels for the tree skirt top. Remember to adjust the size of each if you increase or decrease the number of fabrics. Also be aware that each of panels will be cut in both directions, so you'll want to consider placement of each fabric in both directions before you cut your strips.

    Sew strips together, and press all seams in the same direction. Once you have your strips sewn together and pressed, begin cutting out your wedges, alternating the ruler so you are cutting in both directions. You should be able to cut 13 to 14 wedges from each panel.

    Here is the result of the alternating wedges.

    Quilt as desired; I stitch in the ditch vertically between the wedges. Then bind as usual. Here is the finished tree skirt.
