Brian's Christmas Tree Skirt

We are attending a wedding in a little over a week
and the gift is finished!

My usual wedding gift is a quilted Christmas Tree Skirt,
when appropriate, of course!

I haven't kept track of how many I've made,
but this one is a favorite.

I love the fabrics, the design and the finish.

The fabrics are from "Splendid" by Robin Pickens.
That border fabric..... gorgeous!!


I saw a finished tree skirt on line and copied the design.
Cardinals were fussy cut for the centers of the HST blocks.


This design may be used
 again in a scrappier way.
Or it would be pretty in a more controlled way, too.


Now it will be wrapped and delivered to the Bride and Groom.

Happy Quilting!


  1. Just a beautiful tree skirt and i love that fabric...hugs, Julierose

  2. it is cute. How do you decide what kind of fabric and colors to use when this is present for a new couple - do you already know what kind of colors and decorations they will be using?

  3. Beautiful. This is one of my favorites that I've seen so far.

  4. A most beautiful Christmas tree skirt. Love both the design and fabrics.

  5. I always admire your tree skirts. This one is especially pretty, and the striped binding is perfect. Such bright colors.

  6. Yes, Ramona -- this one is my favorite of your tree skirts, too! Gorgeous fabrics, traditional enough to be timeless but not old-fashioned or stodgy, and I just love the peppermint candy effect of that striped binding on the diagonal. Have fun at the wedding!
