You won’t even need gifts under the Christmas tree this year if you make this glittery, glitzy tree skirt—it will command all the attention anyway! Gorgeous fabric dusted with sparkles and metallic accents add a fun and festive touch to your holiday decorating. The glitter and gold will sparkle, shine and glow under the lights on your Christmas tree; your family and holiday party guests will be dazzled by the Glitter Blossom Quilted Tree Skirt!
This tree skirt is made entirely with foundation piecing. Since the foundation masters are oversize, the best way to use them is to make a master copy by taping the Master sections together, using the alignment line as a guide. Then make the required number of copies of the joined Master foundation on 11” x 17” paper to avoid sewing over tape.
Christmas tree skirts can be quite pricey to purchase for something you use just once a year, but if you make your own you can tailor it to your tastes and end up with an heirloom piece that you and your family can use for years, even generations. And most tree skirts aren’t as lovely as this one, which looks like a large poinsettia flower glimmering and blooming under the tree.
