The Prickly Pinecones Tree Skirt is a fun variation on giant spiky units laid together with a stem that is foundation curved pieced between the two pinecone sides. With a log cabin inspired star in the middle, this design is sure to bring a rustic, unplugged, mountain retreat feel to any Christmas Celebration. It uses a variety of rich, wintery browns and golds from a Tonga Batik collection called Coffee House, designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer, with Timeless Treasures. Floating points, smart corners, and template layout sheets are featured in this design and traditional piecing skills are necessary to sew the top together.
