    Slowly but surely I'm working my way through my Christmas projects. Today I finished up our new Christmas Tree Skirt. I'm really pleased with how it looks. This project really taught me the importance of keeping my seam allowances constant!

    I used the 10 degree wedge ruler and a free pattern that I found here: http://www.sulky.com/project/treeskirt/ I modified it some - I'm not really a ruffle kind of girl, so I added a row instead. I also increased the number of colors but at the same time decreased them into color-coordinated groups so the spiral would be more pronounced. I saw a picture of one made like mine on the web and figured out my modifications from that.

    Anyway - here it is. Thanks for looking!

    Yeah for you! You have done what so many of us keep saying we're going to do. I love this pattern, I think this may be the one I want to make.[I will make one, given enough time, really I will...] Yours is beautiful, slip out during the night, I'll bet you catch your tree dancing in her beautiful skirt!

    Very beautiful. I have been doing the spiral table toppers but haven't tried one of these yet.

    Great job. I just love it. I agree, your tree will be dancing! I made one, but it was all applique but turned out very nice.

    I love this and have bookmarked the pattern.
    I wouldn't like the ruffle either.
    Nicely done.

    Thanks everyone for your nice comments! It's nice to be able to show my projects off here for people who understand what they are and what goes into them.

    My husband just doesn't get it. When I was piecing the top, I showed it to him and told him it was going to be a Christmas Tree Skirt. Either he wasn't paying attention (probably) or he didn't hear the word "tree" (maybe) or both (likely). The first words out of his mouth were... "Oh... who is going to wear that?" :roll:

    Needless to say - I don't look to him for positive feedback about my projects! :wink: I think maybe he'll get it when he sees the skirt on the tree.

    It's gorgeous!

    I made one just after Christmas last year. Same here, didn't want the ruffle, but did add a wide border so it would be larger. I had some scraps left that I made matching stockings with. This is mine: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-34486-1.htm
