Log cabin Christmas tree

This little log cabin Christmas tree went on the table today. It is 10 inches tall.

If you want to make this little paper pieced tree, click on the small graphic below to print out your own foundations. You will need three foundations. Set your printer margins to ¼ inch all around so it will print out full size. If your printer will not accept such small margins just print out whatever size you can, but remember to add full ¼ inch seam allowances around the foundation sides.

Construct the three sides of the tree on their separate foundations. Fold up the bottom ¼ inch seam allowances before you sew the three sides together.

Trim the point and narrow the seam allowances near the top before you turn the tree right side out. I used a knitting needle to push up the point.

Merry Christmas to all.
