Christmas Tree Skirt, Quilted

I used Boundless Holiday Fabric, 36 strips from a jelly roll for this tree skirt. If you follow the directions given for the quilt they work perfectly. If, however, you are using more than two colors you need to be sure that the first strip and last strip are the same. Otherwise, when you turn the template you end up with two different looks. I finally figured this out. Fortunately I had enough fabric and I now have 2 tree skirts. They are gorgeous. I used a solid gold with glitter like fabric instead of the lights in the jelly roll.

I purchased the same jelly roll for this tree skirt. I love your layout. Did you have enough strips to go around the skirt in the circle type pattern. LOVE your design! But worried I won't have enough matching strips.

I had to use two jelly rolls. I think it's because I made a mistake when I was cutting it I actually ended up with two tree skirts out of the deal. They're both beautiful and different with the same red in them though. Getting ready to quit this one and when I'm done I'll quote the other and post both of them. Thank you so much for the compliment. It means a lot to me. These things take a lot of time energy and effort and I enjoy doing it. It's always nice when other people enjoy looking at it. I have decided I'm making these as gifts this year for Christmas. I'm giving them to them at Thanksgiving dinner though.
