Equilateral Triangle Christmas Tree Skirt
Well, here she is, in all her retro triangly glory. This tree skirt whips up rather quickly, around the same amount of time as the circular wedge Christmas tree skirt quilt. It's the same exact design as PepperKnit's Christmas Tree Skirt, although with one less outer ring of triangles. Even with 42 fewer triangles, this beauty is still 49 inches wide!

I used Velcro on the wrong side this time to secure the two sides, rather than fabric ties. This way the tree skirt can double as a table runner. I kept the center 8" circle cut prior to binding, sewed another piece of fabric to it (right-sides together), left a 1" gap, flipped right-sides out, sewed the gap, and then blanket-stitched the edge to make a nice little filler for the table runner version.

I guess if you were really pressed for purposes, you could also wear it as a house-cape. 'Would fit the super retro theme.
