This adorable Christmas Tree wall hanging is super fun and fast to make. You can use scrap fabric, fat quarters or quarter yards. This wall hanging finishes at about 26 by 29 inches.
5 Fat Quarters (or scraps or quarter yards) (four green, one brown)
3/4 yard Background Fabric
3/4 yard Border Fabric
1/2 yard Binding
1 yard Backing
1-Cut your green fabrics
2-Cut your Trunk- 5x5 inch square
3-Cut background fabric
4-Lay out your green and brown pieces. Put a 3-inch background square in both top corners of all the green layers. (See below.)
5-Sew from corner to corner on all the background squares (a drawn line helps with this) then trim 1/4 inch away from the seam and iron. On the top layer of the tree, the background squares will overlap, this will give you a nice point when the rest of the top has been assembled.
6-Sew the 3x5 inch background strips on each side of the third tree layer, press.
7- Sew the 5.5x5 inch background strips on each side of the second tree layer, press.
8- Sew the 8x5 inch background strips on each side of the first tree layer and trunk and press.
9- Sew all five rows of the tree together.
10- Take your 2.5 inch background strips and add a border around your tree.
11- Cut your Border Fabric into 5-inch x WOF strips. Sew these onto the edges of the quilt.
12-Quilt and bind as desired. I quilted my tree with the Filigree pattern and handstitched my binding.
