I love making this festive tree skirt - all with half-square triangles - NO Y-Seams, Yeah! The top comes together in just an hour or two, but it does take a little time to add the binding with its odd-angles. You've got plenty of time, though.
If you don't want to fuss with odd-angled binding, an Envelope Finish works too! Have you tried this? Sometimes it's called a knife-edge finish.

I made this one today - just needed an example. Right now it's unquilted, but I have time, right?

Here's a fun tree skirt I made for my sister on her little ranch in Idaho. She wanted blues and rust to match her decor. She and her husband raise cattle, and she has loved riding horses since she was three years old. She sometimes competes in a barrel racing league. It's her birthday today, so "Happy Birthday, Buckaroo Jan!

Cowboys, saddles and spurs for the backing:
Fussy pieced so it could be reversible.
