    looking for nice tree skirt pattern

    Hello Everyone, does anyone have any patterns for nice tree skirts? My Daughter In Law would like a nice tree skirt. I tried to google to find one but most I found you had to be member to print them out or pay for them. I don't have the funds to buy patterns so thought, maybe someone here might might point me to a free one? Thank you all so very much, Rachel

    I saw a tree skirt made with ties once that was really neat...don't really need a pattern for that one, just lots of ties!

    I got one at JA's when the patterns were on sale for about $1. they are on sale now. I just did a snowy blue background and put cute snowmen appliqued on it in bright colors.
    good luck and show us what you do.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I did mine from the "Happy Holidays" pattern by Atkinson Designs. There are actually 3 sizes in the pattern, I used the largest one for the tree skirt, the smallest one makes a nice candle mat.

    I have made several of the skirts on the FaveQuilts web site. The patterns are clear. Good luck.

    Hey! I wasn't looking for tree skirt patterns - but - thanks to all of you and of course Rachel who started it I might have to change my mind! Next years gifts are stirring in my head.

    BTY: when I give gifts about Christmas, I pass them out at Thanksgiving so they can enjoy them during the entire season.

    Thank you to all, AndiR I love your tree skirt. I am expanding my ideas now, I have 4 kids and 11 grandchildren,
    Maybe if I find xmas fabric on clearances this year, by next year, I can give them each a tree skirt and matching xmas stockings. I am thinking kind of a patchwork for a couple of the kids and maybe something a little fancier for one. Etc.
    So many great ideas. Probably take me until next Christmas to get them all done. LOL

    A really nice one is made with diamond shape log cabin. You make 5 of these and when you put them together the make a star around the bottom of your tree. I made mine with taffeta and velvet and added a taffeta ruffle around the bottom. Will post a picture when I find one. Didn't have a pattern.

    andir- your tree skirt is simply amazing. so pretty. almost to pretty to put under a tree. It's scrumptious. Quilting is amazing.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
