Foundation Pieced Pattern: Christmas Tree

Use Christmas fabrics to make this foundation pieced tree look seasonal. Even more so if you add beads to the tree for decorations.

The pattern is about A3 in size (two sheets of computer paper). Print pattern sheet 1 and pattern sheet 2, then stick them together (the sheets overlap slightly)

You will need:
• A printout of the two pieces of the foundation pieced pattern, stuck together.
• Scrap bits of green, in as many variations as you care to use. (I’ve used three greens, two cotton and one silk.)
• About half a fat quarter for the background around the tree. Possibly a different fabric for underneath the tree.
• Interfacing or thin fabric if you prefer a permanent foundation, to trace the pattern onto.

• Start at piece 1, as you would on any foundation pieced block. Work your way piece by piece from no.1 to no.33, which is the last bit of the tree.
• Add side pieces 34 and 35 to make the block a rectangle.
• Border and binding.

• Brown fabric: piece 1
• Green fabric: pieces 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 31
• Background fabric: 2, 3, 4, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25 ,27, 29, 32, 33, 34, 35

  1. It’s me again! Last night I figured out how I may have to get the pattern for the tree and just now got it. Brain does not work as fast as I want it to sometimes. Thanks for the neat pattern. Now I have to find a cute paper pieced kitty to set my idea up. Happy Holidays, Vicki McBroom

  2. I’m so excited to try this foundation pattern for the Christmas Tree. I’ve sewn my whole life…just started quilting in 2008. I tried foundation piecing once…but the instructor wasn’t very good (she made beautiful quilts). I’ve tried a couple of “other” foundation patterns…this will be my biggest attempt. I promise to post a picture once I’ve completed the pattern. Wish me luck! (Thank you – by the way – for the pattern!
