Lone Star Christmas Tree Skirt – A New Pattern
Every year I picture a calm, relaxed holiday season with gifts wrapped early, festive decor up weeks in advance, beautiful meals for my family, and plenty of time for holiday themed sewing. Then life intervenes and I’m scrambling yet again. This year I’m ahead of schedule on at least one thing: my new lone star Christmas tree skirt, which is also the newest pattern in my Etsy shop.
There is a sew along for this pattern, which includes five weekly videos that offer tips and walk you through the steps of making your own tree skirt. Visit the Lone Star Tree Skirt Sew Along page for more information.
The tree skirt measures 48″ across, uses seven different fabrics in the star, finishes as an octagon, and is a lot of fun to make. It follows the same basic principles taught in my lone star block tutorial and is a relatively quick project because it’s just one quilt block.
The pattern includes a coloring sheet to plan your fabric placement. It also includes instructions for making the block into a tree skirt. I enjoyed mixing up some of my Christmas fabrics in mine. It features prints from Alison Glass, Alexander Henry, Victoria Findlay Wolfe and Amy Butler.
I quilted mine with an orange peel pattern in the small diamonds and straight lines in the background.
A lone star Christmas tree skirt will be a beautiful addition to your holiday decor, as well as a great gift.
The pattern is available now in my Etsy shop. Download yours today, and get started on your holiday decor and gifts!
