Arrange your rectangles according to the diagram above.
ALL SEAMS are a ¼ inch. Please test your ¼ inch if you do not already have the seam allowance established on your machine!
Begin by sewing each row of background, tree fabric, background. Once you have all eight rows assembled and pressed towards the darker fabric, sew each row to the next. Do not worry about slight discrepancies in row size, if you have them. You will trim the whole piece once it’s quilted.
A piece this small does not necessarily need basting! Layer your quilt sandwich, quilt, trim, and bind.
If you want a hanger of some sort on the back (a quilt sleeve or pockets for a dowel rod) take the time to do that now.
The next few steps are optional, but are awfully pretty!
Find a suitable amount of large buttons that match (mostly).
Hand sew buttons in random places around the Christmas tree.
Hang ornaments by the buttons. Add bows and a star to complete the tree!
Hang and enjoy!
