DBJJ Christmas Tree Skirt Block Tracker


Have you seen the new DBJJ Christmas Tree Skirt? This thing is GORGEOUS! I had so much fun making this adorable North Pole village tree skirt! You can get the pattern here.

If you’re making the Designs by JuJu Christmas Tree Skirt, you might find it helpful to keep on track of all 45 parts and pieces using this free downloadable handy Tree Skirt Block Tracker. When I started, I didn’t use this but I found I was forced to make it up as I went along so I’m happy to share it with you!

The inner blocks 1-8 are all different but there are 7 multiples of block #9. Then on the outer blocks, there are 7 multiples of the first block and 8 multiples of the second. It can get kind of crazy as these stack up and you find yourself continually sorting through them to see what’s been done and what there is still to do.

Here is a list of fabrics I used and recommended fabrics if you can’t locate my exact ones. RebsFabStash is putting together fabric kits and should have them ready by the end of Aug 2022. I’ll announce on the PTWT FB group and in a video when they are available for sale

Here is Part 1 of a how-to video where I cover considerations for the pattern make, fabric prep, fabric conservation, and block finishing. I cover block construction and skirt finishing in Part 2.

In this video, I’ll show you how to add a backing, get gorgeous flat blocks with a clean pressed edge finish, and we’ll add the bias tape binding. Enjoy!
