    Thanks, this tree skirt measures 55" across on the flat sides and 66" across from point to point. The nice thing about this pattern is that you can modify it. I made one following the directions given in the book and it measures 78" from point to point and fits my 12' tree perfectly. This one is made for a slim tree and should fit nicely. I made one years ago for a 2' tall tree and just adjusted the width of the strips. It's almost all done by strip quilting.

    The pattern is from an Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day Book entitled, "Diamond Log Cabin" table cloth or tree skirt. It's a very easy pattern that makes up fairly quickly. This one only has 3 darks and 3 lights. I've made several with only the 3 lights and 3 darks and they fit the trees wonderfully. The pattern from Ms. Burns instructs you to use 4 light and 4 dark and makes quite a large tree skirt. I made one with 4 of each color for my 12' tree and it looks great. Good luck and post a picture when you've finished. You can get the book from Amazon.

    Easier than you can imagine. It's done as a strip quilting project and is nearly foolproof.
