Here's a pic of the Christmas tree quilt I made twice--almost literally.  I will find some backing for it and take it to my quilter.  She will make it beautiful!  Sue in IL

That's certainly a cheery quilt.

That's an excellent quilt!  A great way to use up and showcase a bunch of fabrics.  I bet it was pretty easy to construct.

Yes, it's very easy, except when you cut half the background trees with the deer and trees upside down and have to rip them all off and start over. Definitely recommend a non-directional fabric for background, sashing, and inner border.

 Missouri Star's template is made so that you can cut two trees and a trunk out of a 10" square.  There is a smaller template, too.

I'm sorry it took so much extra work, but it sure turned out lovely.  Can you do something with all the leftover scraps?

Oh I really like that! My DD asked for a Christmas quilt after I made her each of her 3 sons. This might be the one.

Sandy, the MSQC template isn't expensive, and it lets you make good use of a 10" square. Very little wasted fabric.
