Oh, Christmas fat quarter tree—-how easy it is to make you….. hee hee {yes, you will be singing that for the rest of the day- thank me later}

What makes this project great is you can use any 3 fat quarters….to make a Christmas tree, or a haunted tree (think black, orange, purple) or whatever combination you choose.

I was able to pick some fun fabric from my stash, which worked out even better.

Fabric Christmas Tree

Materials needed:

4 fat quarters- 1 trunk and 3 for the tree

*they can be a mix of colors- don’t think they all need to be green for the tree. This is fun in bright fabric as well!
Repeat these steps with 3 of them the last one is for the trunk.

Folded Fabric – Fat Quarter – Christmas Tree~

fold the fat quarter in half the LONG way. fold is at the top
 
fold in half again. fold is at the top.
 
turn up the bottom left corner a bit past half way. fold is still at the top.
 
take that left side and fold it down to meet the bottom edge.
fold it up to meet the top edge.
 
continue with folding and meeting the edges–yes, it is a flag fold. you are left with a little bit on the end.

    I love that all you do is fold the material – not sew it!!! The material can be used after Christmas is over. I featured this at somedaycrafts.blogspot.com

    You could also use the fat quarter tree for candy corn but leave out the tree trunk.

    May I ask a dumb question, as I don’t do much quilting? What is a “quarter” and how big is it? I love Christmas trees and have dozens I use to decorate my home for the holidays. Love the easy to follow directions!! Thank you!

    Fat quarters are usually 18″ X 20″ almost square, but not quite. Have fun!
