Free pattern day: Christmas part 1

In 2010 we published 12 days of Christmas Trees, which revealed just how many variations of trees are possible.  Here are some fantastic free patterns and tutorials for Christmas Tree quilts!  After all, quilted trees are "green" (reusable) and they take up far less space than a real tree ! (Note: This post was updated on June 11, 2015.)
