Free pattern day: Christmas quilts (part 1): Trees!

It's Christmas in July !  Here is a forest of  free patterns and tutorials for Christmas Tree quilts and wall hangings.  Quilted trees are "green" (reusable) and they take up far less space than a real tree! To go to the pattern, simply click on the hyperlink in the title above each quilt. Note:  This post was updated on April 9, 2016.
