Over twelve years ago I had sewn a few quilted tree skirts. Five to be exact. The picture below shows you the first one I had ever completed. The women in my family loved it so much that they all wanted one. At the time, since our family had grown so much in size, we picked names out of a hat for exchanging Christmas presents. It was made sure that each year I got someone else's name that had not yet received one of these skirts.
It may have been a few years since I have sewn one, but it isn't something I have forgotten how to do. I have enough fabric to make four more skirts right now. I have all the squares cut out for the skirts with the exception of one of the beige fabrics needs to be cut up for three of the skirts. For the most part all fabric patterns are the same with the exception that one skirt will have a different beige fabric than all the rest. The same goes for for one of the white fabrics. Other than that, they will be identical.
I spent probably close to three hours sewing up the squares for one of the tree skirts. Each skirt has two panels to be sewn. I did both panels for the one skirt. The picture below contains both panels but I have them stacked on top of each other.
I am quite pleased with the pattern combination. I look forward to finishing it, but before I can, I must do a little shopping at my local Joann's to get the remaining materials needed for all four skirts.
My goal is to complete all the tree skirts within the next month or so. I want to sell three of the skirts to those who would like to have one in time for Christmas, either for themselves or as gifts. I would be willing to make more this year, but only if I am asked by someone who didn't get one of the three. I now my mom and sisters absolutely treasure theirs!
