Next week starts a new block of classes, the last block of 2018!!
In this final term, our attention will turn towards preparations for Christmas!
Following several requests for a Christmas Tree Skirt, I’ve curated a selection of patterns which my ladies can choose from.
I don’t have time to make all of these wonderful examples, but I did make this one!
This cracker themed tree skirt was originally designed by my lovely quilty friend Reene of Nellies Niceties.
I have never used a tree skirt around my Christmas tree before, but as soon as Reene released her free pattern, I pinned it and knew one day I would make it!
While Reene’s instructions are on how to make the top only, they are really clear and the easy piecing means it works up really quickly!
This tree skirt is a good size, but if you needed a smaller one, simply omit one or two crackers until you have your desired size.
I had fun quilting this ‘skirt’ using my quilting bar, and decided to finish the opening with buttons and hair bobbles!
This was a fun venture into my first Christmas Tree Skirt! And I’m looking forward to seeing many more tree skirts over the next few weeks!
And we’ll also have lots more tutorials and inspiration for your Christmas gift and decorating ideas!
So if you would like to join in the Christmas fun, spaces are still available across all 6 classes. Give me a shout if you would like to book a spot!
