If you're coming over from the Fat Quarter Shop WELCOME! If not, glad to have you back :).
When I was asked to be apart of this tree skirt project I, of course, said yes! If you would like to get your hands on this beautiful pattern you can purchase it at the Fat Quarter Shop! They are also offering a kit and a video tutorial to help you through the pattern. In the whole process, the only part I was concerned about was binding around the circle, and that ended up being very easy. So, give it a try!
|Disregard my lack of Christmas tree, they are not in season!!|
Last fall I made a quilt top using some of my favorite Christmas fabrics I had collected and had a bunch of scraps left over. This skirt pattern was too cute to pass up! I ended up using the same fabrics so it would match. The background is Essex Linen in Natural. I wanted something that would make the white prints pop and add texture. The linen was a great choice.
Knowing the quilt top wouldn't get heavy use, I went with some light hand quilting in red. The quilt ended up having a nice drape to it, which will look great around a tree. The big stitching was just enough to add detail but not take away from the fabrics.
If anyone is looking for Christmas fabric, in my search I found the Fat Quarter Shop has a Christmas Cloth Store. Pretty spectacular! Some people are probably laughing at me, but for those of you who didn't know, it's awesome. Also, if you haven't already, head to the Jolly Jabber to see other versions of this tree skirt.
