    Christmas Tree skirt using wedge ruler

    Always wanted to make a Christmas Tree skirt and this couldn't have been more easy. This was done using the whole ruler so it would make skirt at least 50".

    Very nice! I've wanted to make a skirt too.

    Which wedge did you use? How much fabric did it take?

    Phillips FiberArt 10 degree wedge made by Cheryl Phillips. I got it from Amazon.com. Not sure of yardage , just kept cutting until I had a complete circle. Got to use up some some stash and it was super fast and easy to do.

    I was reading on another web site & it said that it would take 36 wedges to complete a full 50 inch circle. Don't know if this helps someone or not.

    beautiful colors, and so pretty
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
