Dresden Tree Skirt FINISH :)

In just 3 days I took this fabric & template...
And made this flimsy on Gloria ... my Singer 301A...
Picked out my binding & thread...
Hand quilted each dresden blade...
Then used my BIAS made binding from THIS tutorial... it took most of a 1/2 yard cut too!

And hand stitched that all down...
Yep, I remembered to add a label at the last minute too :)

And pre-washed "Tah dah"!!!!
The top tie I wanted sturdy so I designed it as part of the binding... but the decorative tie below is the satin ribbon that held the inspirational 7 fat quarters I started with as explained on this blog post!

Here is just a fun shot of the front and back of this cute Christmas Tree Skirt...
So I will be showing off this darling tree skirt on my tree on my blog later in the week... But it will be enjoyed Christmas morning!!!  I am posting this as I wanted to share with you and Bonnie Hunter too on her Christmas Eve linky Party here :)

There is so much I haven't shared or couldn't share all of so follow me as there is lots of fun quilty stuff to come!

Happy Christmas Eve from my home to yours :)


  1. Gorgeous tree skirt. I want to make a tree skirt in 2015, and I've added yours to a list of possible patterns to use.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!


Thanks for taking time to comment. Have a blessed day!
