You hear that phrase quite a bit - Christmas in July, right? Well, this year I actually sewed ahead of schedule for the holiday season. This beautiful tree skirt is for Kaitlyn and Jake and will be perfect in their home for the Christmas season. By the way, can you believe it is almost their one year anniversary?

Enter Mom and her vow in March to work through the quilting fabric and projects, which this tree skirt qualified, the fabric was residing at my house.
Meredith found this Christmas Cheer Tree Skirt tutorial and Kaitlyn picked out the fabric and then Mom sewed it! We make a great team.
This pattern is so easy to make and really went together quickly.
One suggestion would be to use a wider variety of fabrics, I had to lay this one out and make sure I didn't have any fabrics next to one another. The pattern calls for 21 - 1/3 yard cuts, which gives a nice variety. For Kaitlyn's tree skirt, I only had 5 fabrics to use.
Isn't that reindeer fabric the cutest? I used it on the back of her tree skirt and the binding is leftover from her Christmas quilt, which Kaitlyn made.
