PostSubject: Christmas tree skirt pattern   Sat Feb 06, 2010 3:23 pm

My mom is looking for Christmas tree skirt patterns online to make one for my cousin and family. Anyone know of a few websites for her to check? I do have the one about making a tree skirt from table runners from the dollar store...lol. I think we had that one on here a long time ago....
Thanks! Undesided

I made this one. It takes about 25 to 30 hours including quilting and binding.

Joann, that is just gorgeous. I love the way you fussycut the little Christmas bulbs out. I know a lot of the ladies on here design their own patterns, (something of which I'll probably never be able to do), so did you design this one Joann or just buy it? I imagine working full time you don't have a lot of extra time, but either way you did a beautiful job. I have dreams of making one someday. Maybe this will be the year.

I did buy the pattern. It was actually a class as the LQS, but in the evening. A quilting friend and I really liked it and also needed a tree skirt, so we decided to buy the pattern and do our own class. We both had the week of Thanksgiving off. Now this is in 2008 and got together 2 days that week. I finished it in time to pack it away for Christmas 2009.

Gimpy, your link had several patterns that were no longer available. HOWEVER, I was persistent and the last one has a PP pattern of a pine tree and different settings to make different tree skirts. It is really a nice pattern.

AQM, I like that pattern too. It looks fairly easy, of course, you'd have to actually pay attention! However, it would be a good one to give as a gift.

YEAH! Thanks everyone...I'm about to go show these to her. She and my dad are here for a cousin's wedding. I'll keep an eye out to see if anyone else finds one. I'll email all these links to her so she can check them out. Hug

There are several here - but I believe you have to sign on for an annual membership which costs $30.00 - so that doesn't fit in with being free, I'm afraid. http://ajpadilla.com/

QB, I do love the Angie's Bits & Pieces site. I have so many items unfinished...heck, they aren't even started. I hate to spend $30 a year on the site and never getting a chance to make anything on the site. Of course, I could print away and start an Angie's 3-ring binder!

Exactly, Luvs! Very Happy It's kind of like having another magazine subscription, I guess. . . except it isn't another pile on my shelf (or floor)!

Joann...that tree skirt is gorgeous!

Golo..the PP'd diamonds sound interesting. I hope you'll show us when you're done?
