Meet Caroline and start your tree skirt by creating the pieced blades with strip piecing. See how sewing strips together before you cut makes quick work of the skirt's pieces. Then, explore color options and cut with the template (included in your materials) to create each blade.
Once your blades are cut, arrange and sew them to the batting to create the skirt. Caroline shows you how to prepare the batting, secure each blade, and prepare the button loops you'll use to close the skirt.
Watch your skirt come together as you stack, sew and quilt the layers. Prepare the backing and baste the quilt, then sew the layers, without traditional binding, for a quick and beautiful finish.
You're almost done! In this final lesson, learn how to quilt layers easily with simple walking-foot quilting. Add a personal touch with buttons and tassels, which you can make with embroidery floss, to complete your tree skirt.
