In the Nick of Time

I finished my Christmas Tree Skirt in the nick of time!

I found this pattern at Missouri Star Quilt Co. and fell in love with it.

I purchased it and the fabric needed a long time ago.

I have no idea why I didn’t start this well before December, but I waited and then it was down to the wire.

I laid out my pattern to make sure I didn’t have any squares repeating (although, no matter how careful I tried to be, I did have a repeat of a blue square).


I did well sewing the borders and trimming the corners.


The quilting was quickly done, just straight lines-nothing fancy.


My problem was the binding.

I went with cutting 3 inch strips (pattern calls for 2 1/4) and started doing the binding yesterday.

I’ve have gained confidence binding quilts, straight lines with 90 degree corners.

This has angles and circles.

Soooooo, my binding is a little wonky 😉

However, I don’t mind.


I originally had a white and red striped binding fabric, but I felt it detracted from my lovely red and white horse boarder.

I used the red from the backing and am happy with my choice.

The finished skirt is a little big for our space, but I am so pleased with it!


It will be nice to have something we will put underneath the tree for years to come!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!

Thank you to Missouri Star Quilt Co. for reposting my image on IG and the lovely comments.
