Materials:

  • 126 - 2" paper pieces (Each side of the hexie measures 2" and 4" across from corner to corner.)
  • 2 yards of assorted color fabrics for hexies *see below
  • 2½ yards backing fabric
  • 1 yard bias binding

Fabric Requirements:

Fabric requirements for individual designs listed below.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If your fabric measures less than 41" wide, please add 1/8 yard to each measurement.

Instructions:

Quilt Top:

  1. Follow the Step by Step English Paper Piecing Tutorial for making and sewing hexies, placing them according to the chosen color chart.
  2. Make the full circle of the tree skirt without leaving an opening at this time.
  3. After removing the papers, press seams carefully, and press the outer seam at the bottom edge open. Do not press the top narrower edge open.

Backing:

  1. Cut 2 pieces of from the backing fabric, each 23" wide by 45" long.
  2. Sew the right sides together along the long side. Press the seams to one side.
  3. With a ruler, draw a straight line and trim the opening edge of the pieced hexie skirt as shown in the diagram below. Trim the seam allowances from both sides of this opening for a clean edge.

     
  4. Place backing right side up on a flat surface. Place pieced hexie skirt on top, right side down. Pin generously and carefully.

     
  5. Beginning at the top of the straight cut edge, stitch carefully, first along the straight cut edge, then along the outside edge of the tree skirt, and back up the other straight cut edge, following the pieced top. Stitch slowly and turn with the angles of the hexies along the entire outer curve. Trim, remove pins, turn, and press.

     
  6. Cover the top seam with bias binding. Topstitch, leaving ends to tie the skirt to the tree.
