Lone Star Tree Skirt Sew Along Finish
Here we are, at the end of the Lone Star Tree Skirt Sew Along! I’m checking in today to share my finished Lone Star Christmas Tree Skirt. If you’re not finished yet, don’t stress! There is plenty of time to finish, or start one before the Christmas rush. Please join us! The tree skirt pattern is available here.
I finished the binding and tied a pretty bow, and promptly wished for a tree to wrap it around.
Instead, I contented myself with pulling out a few vintage ornaments.
This project has been a fun one for me. I added black to the mix, tried new things with my quilting, and got comfortable with this view:
It turns out it’s fun to try new things, including staring at a video camera. (Especially if something pretty, like a finished quilt project, comes of it)
For some reason the ties on this project kind of melt my heart. No idea why, but they do.
I want to say THANK YOU to all of you who have sewed along with me! Thanks for your encouragement, your feedback, your questions, your photos, and for purchasing the pattern.

Loved your tutorial!! Instructions were detailed, yet easy to understand. Breaking it down into week by week steps made me realize I could do this and get it done before Christmas. Thanks you so much!
I would like to make the lone star tree skirt for a gift but I’m afraid it may be to hard for a beginner. What level would you say this project would be?
Sandy, you ask a great question. I think that if you can sew a consistent 1/4″ seam, and if you’re willing to go slowly and unpick if necessary, it’s doable. The videos are helpful also. And you could try making a smaller, single block, first if you’d like to try it out before undertaking the larger tree skirt pattern. I hope that helps!
