Once upon a time, when I was a fledgling quilter I made a quilted tree skirt to go under my tree. I chose a silly novelty print that features cows wearing Santa hats. What can I say? It was the 90’s and we didn’t have a lot to choose from back then! Luckily it wasn’t the only fabric I used; there was plenty of red and green to go with it.
Cows aside, to this day it is still one of my favorite projects. I ran out of time (of course!) so it isn’t quilted very much. I always meant to go back and add more quilting to accent the diamond shapes. It is lovely and it graces my tree every year. If you haven’t made a Christmas tree skirt, I must say that it is an enjoyable and very quick project.
After seeing the cover of the December issue of McCall’s Quilting, I thought I would share a few of the tree skirt patterns we have at The Quilting Company to inspire your holiday decorating!
