Christmas Tree Skirt class

Classes will be available for two Christmas tree skirt patterns. The first one is a very simple, quick design using only 8 Fat quarters. The photo shows the top almost together. It will have a circle cut out of the middle and red binding around the outside edge, inner circle and both sides of opening. Choose two darker FQ's of similar value as the blue ones in the photo to make the design work symmetrically or purchase an extra dark blue one. The outside green row works best with two fairly equal value tone on tone fabrics. The other option would be to make them identical.

The second tree skirt is a diamond log cabin design. This is my old, dated tree skirt that I made in the early 90's? Normally I would have put the red on the outside, but our old house had a rust carpet :-). This tree skirt looks great in all kinds of different Christmas fabrics...choose lights for the one side, dark for the other or red on one side, green on the other, etc.

Here is a country version using plaid homespuns:
