I’m not sure why it hadn’t occurred to me to make one of these, but now that I found this fabulous tutorial, I have one and I can’t begin to tell you the difference it makes in the whole room!
I made this awesome quilted tree skirt for my home and gave one to my daughter as one of her gifts since her birthday was in November and she was so excited and surprised.
This gal calls this a Joyful Jellyroll Tree Skirt and that’s exactly what it is. I was amazed at how it brightened up my living room by just sitting under my tree. It’s interesting how these pops of color changes up the whole look of my Christmas decorations!
There are a lot of tree skirt patterns online, but this one is by far my favorite one. I think I was originally drawn to the colors she used (my favorites), but then I realized that I also like the vintage patchwork look of this tree skirt!
Think outside of the box! Use your quilting skills to create quilted stockings and tree skirts for your home. Not only are they fun to sew, this allows patchwork to be added to more places in your home. These items also make perfect gifts for the Christmas lovers in your life.
