Hi! This is a beautiful pattern! I've now made two tops - one will be the actual skirt and one will be a wall hanging. I'm very new to quilting and I found the pattern to be mostly easy to follow. Hey, I even got the points to line up dead center - so that's cool, right? I do have just one probably silly question. What is the seam allowance for the binding? Thanks so much!

Duh, I've figured out what I did ... a quick seam rip and 1/4" here I come! Last question - where did you start the binding for the outside - where you cut the long cut to go into the circle?

Hi, cryspm, thanks for your comments! That is very cool and satisfying to have the seams line up dead center; awesome! Then if you use it for a tree skirt, the toughest part is cutting out the center circle! I say, save it, bind it and use it for an ornament, lol! The seam allowance for the binding is 1/4" , and the binding strips are cut at 2" - that way you don't lose the outside points of the star. To answer your question below, start applying the binding right at the cut edge of the center hole, down one long edge of your slice, then work your way around the quilt edges, mitering the outer corners and clipping the inner corners. You should end up at the other side of the cut edge of the circle. Trim binding off at the beginning and ending, then apply a bias strip of binding around the center hole to cover the raw edges, leaving enough extra to tie a bow around the tree. We'd love to see pictures of your completed projects!
