Looking for a quick and easy stash-busting project that’s perfect for holiday gifting? Look no further! Join designer Caroline Fairbanks-Critchfield and learn to sew a simple patchwork quilted tree skirt. Using pre-cut strips and backing fabric, Caroline will guide you step by step to complete your skirt with strip piecing and walking-foot quilting. Plus, find out how to add buttons and tassels to really make the design your own.
NOTE: If you’d like to purchase only the DVD for this class, you may do so through this link. (Please note, any class PDF materials are not on the DVD itself. You must have streaming access to download those materials associated with the class.)
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.
Sewing the Blades to the Batting (9:44)
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.
Assembling the Skirt (13:49)
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.
Quilting & Embellishment (20:30)
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.
