    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!
