It’s a Great Project for Leftover Jelly Roll Strips!
This beautiful tree skirt is one you’ll enjoy pulling out every year. It’s easy and quick to make, and all you need is a jelly roll of 2 1/2″ strips in your favorite colors.
Embellish the skirt with buttons, tassels and other goodies. Or leave it plain and let the fabrics star. It’s also a good project for leftover strips in your stash, and since there is no binding you’ll have this done before you know it.
We love the rich reds in the example above. It’s also gorgeous made up in white and gold, as Amy Smart did for hers. You’ll find lots of inspiration in the photo gallery here and here on Google.

The pattern is available as part of an inexpensive and very popular class. If you’re not interested in a class, don’t panic! The cost is about the same as for a pattern. And, you’ll be able to download the pattern and ignore the rest, if that’s what you prefer.
It is a wonderful class, though, and gets rave reviews. The instructor is Caroline Fairbanks-Critchfield who does a great job of leading you through the project.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
