No Christmas tree is complete without a lovely, handmade tree skirt!
Christmas is just a few weeks away, and we’ve already got the tree up and decorated at our house! No Christmas tree is complete without a lovely, handmade tree skirt. And what better way to add the finishing touch than with a quilting project your family will treasure for years to come? We asked you to send us pictures of your quilted tree skirt, and you guys did not disappoint! With more that 100 photos sent in, we didn’t have space to feature them all, but we selected the top 15 favorites. Without further ado, here are the most magical quilted tree skirts this year:
Candy Cane Swirls
From the very talented quilter, Denise: I used a wedge ruler on charm packs. Amazing how much binding is needed!
Cozy Home Skirt
From the talented quilter, Cindy: My version of the Cozy Home tree skirt… love love loved that one, so I replicated it with my fabric stash from some of the girls clothes/bedding I have made over the last few years.
Christmas Jelly Roll Tree Skirt
From the talented quilter, Leann: I needed a very big one for our 9′ tree. I finished this one in January this year. I didn’t have a pattern, but had looked online to see tree skirt examples. Then decided to use a 10º wedge ruler, jelly roll, bamboo batting, and ultra suede for the binding.
Apron Tree Skirt
From the talented quilter, Diane: Here is my small tree skirt under my smaller tree. I made it with a dresdan ruler. I took apart a Christmas apron that my mother had made for me, and used the fabrics.
Family Tree Skirt
From the talented quilter, Bunny: Made mine when the kids were small, myself, my hubby, my daughter and my son all represented on it. They are in their late 40s now!
