    tree skirt patterns?

    For many years I have tried to find a tree skirt in the shops that I like. I have never been successful and always end up with one that I basically settle for....and they are always too small!

    Looking at everyones trees, I see the most lovely tree skirts! And they appear to be home made. Are there patterns for these or did y'all just make them up yourselves?

    If you have made a tree skirt, post a pic!

    Jenny did a tutorial on a tree skirt a couple of years ago. Here is the link:

        I decided to make a tree skirt a few days ago and used Jenny's tutorial. I have it on the quilt frame now and should have it done tomorrow or the next day. I'll post a pick then. So far I really like it and it's easy to do

          Hi, Wendy!
          I made a couple from Jenny's tutorial, but I can't seem to get them to show up here (I'm on my computer at work). There are two photos in my album "Christmas 2013" in case you feel like looking there; otherwise, I'll try to get them posted when I get home late this evening. This is a pretty easy skirt to make; but looks really nice. If you use two charm packs (or half a layer cake), you'll get a pretty good size skirt. Your fabric choices can really change the look, from country to whimsical to classic! Have fun!

          Christmas quilty-hugs to you and Liam!

            I made one years ago, because I liked mine to cover the floor completely under the large tree. From counting the square tiles in the picture, I think it is about 60 inches in diameter. I am at work, and M* is not letting me upload it (I think because of size). Need to figure out how to resize it again. eTree Skirt_new.jpg . OK hope this works. Thank you YouTube!

                  I really like this one - but only want the pattern. I don't really care for the fabric line, and would like to make it scrappy.

                  Panels like these are another option.

                  I have seen this panel sold separately, I think at M*.

                    I made ne from Jennys tutorial and love how it came out. You can make it as large as you want and it was a breeze to make.

                      Moda Bake Shop has several tutorials too. I always think someday I will make one but I never have.

                        I've been working on the last one for a year now. It's made with layer cakes for the presents. I didn't have a pattern, so I made it up as I went.

                          OMG, I love them all, but particularly the top two. Do you have a pattern for those? TIA.

                            I would also like to know about your patterns. They all are stunning.
