    16 fabric circles equals 1 Christmas tree

    Our quilt group was recently challenged to make a Christmas item and one of the ladies came up with a cute fabric Christmas tree. I thought it was so sweet that I just had to have one. In fact I am going to make 3. I have cut out my 48 circles, put a running stitch in them and now just need to pull them in and tie them off. A job to do in front of tv tonight. I may even glue some small beads as decorations.

    I love it, just don't know what to use for the spike in the middle. Where did you all find that or is there a suitable substitution?

    What do you use for the spike? I didn't see that mentioned in your tutorial. Is it a nail or what? Thanks for the info.

    I could see putting some thin ribbon on it in swags. Cute idea.

    I got to glance this morning at your tutorial for this adorable tree but didn't have the time to really get the whole way thru. Now I can't find it in the tutorial. I went into the archive and still couldn't find it. Would it be a big inconvenience to send it to my email address? If that is possible my email address is [email protected]


    Thanks so much.
