    What a great idea!
    And a great Chrisie gift.
    I don't have a big stash of Christmas fabric (not that that has stopped me before)
    but I have lots of green and red.

    Angie - Thanks for much for the tutorial. This ruler was given to me and I had no idea what I could make with it!

    Franie - Do have any pictures you can post of the ones you have done? I'd love to see more of these tree skirts.

    Thanks,
    Nancy

    I like the pattern you achieved with your strips. It's a very pretty tree skirt.

    It's where you machine in the join between the two pieces of fabric.

    Nancy,
    How lucky for you that someone gave you the ruler! Here are a couple more of mine that are different. I would also like to see the ones that Franie has done...

    GREAT Christ Tree Skirt TUTORIAL!!! Got'ta HAVE this RULER!!! :-) Where would I find it? :-) I came across an ADORABLE Christmas Stocking Pattern, awhile back. I'll see if I can find the FREE Pattern so I can share it with you. Anyway...it was first pieced with alternating wedges...very much like the wedges shown in this Christmas Tree Skirt Tutorial. The pattern just advised 2 1/2 inch Jelly Roll Strips, that needed to be tapered equally on one end of the strip. For me, I would have a problem with accuracy, when I tried to trem each strip equally. I think that this Ruler would insure accuracy for me. OK...got'ta go find that Christmas Stocking to share with you. Hmmm...this is my first Post on this QuiltingBoard. I'm just trying to find my way around. Sure hope I will be able to re-find this QB Thread. :-) I LUV Christmas & all the Holiday Quilty Patterns associated with Christmas. Warmest regards, Patricia "Pat" Hogge in Bremerton, WA
