A Christmas Tree-Skirt and GIVEAWAY!

Hi all!

Welcome to all of my existing readers and new readers alike!  Today is my day in SewCalGal's Christmas blog hop!  You have to hop on over to SewCalGal's blog and check out the list of all the other hoppers - there are some great tips and tutorials and a great give-away so run on over and check it all out!

I hope that you like my tutorial using the Accuquilt Go! Sleigh and Snowflakes die.  I have been wanting to make a new tree-skirt for our tree for a while and this blog hop gave me the perfect excuse.  I love this die since it makes cutting reindeer and the sleigh so quick and easy - not to mention the snowflake (but I don't use that shape today).

First let's start with the background for the tree-skirt.  I decided to do a non-round tree-skirt so we are going to need to peice it.  Now if you feel comfortable making an octagon without peicing feel free!

You will need:
2 x 12.5" squares
1 x 12.5" by 36" rectangle
1 x 18.5" square

Cross-cut the 18.5" square on each diagonal to make 4 triangles.

Piece two of the  triangles to each side of the 12.5" squares as shown.

Piece these two units to either side of the long rectangle as shown.  Now we have our center.  Trim off the excess from the setting triangles


Now cut 4 strips 3.5" by the width of fabric for the borders.  You can either use your 3.5" strip die or rotary cut these.

Add these onto the sides first to the shorter 12.5" sides and trim to the correct angle to match up with the longer sides.

Add the longer sides. 

And trim off the excess.  Whew, the hard work is now finished!!

Ok now onto the fun and easy part!

Press fusible onto the back of some brown fabric and cut 8 reindeer (9 if you want Rudolph!).  Press some fusible onto the back of some red fabric and cut the sleigh. Choose some various Christmas prints and put some fusible on the back of those to make 4 presents using your 2" square die (or you can rotary cut these as well).  The presents in the sleigh make it look like Santa is completely enveloped and covered in presents!


Lay out your top and draw a circle in the middle - mine was about 7" square or the size of my side plate.  Then draw a line from the circle to the end - you will be cutting on these lines later.  Lay out your applique shapes until you are happy with them and press.

I debated adding some snowflakes around the reindeer but every time I placed them I didn't like the effect - maybe if I used a blue snowflake print as my background fabric I would have liked it better with the snowflakes.  But, against the white background I just didn't like it as much so I left them out.  I really like the simplicity of this design.

Layer your quilt top, batting and backing and applique and quilt as desired. I used Sliver metallic thread by Sulky to machine quilt and to applique.


After I finished all of that my kids started to ask where Santa was in the sleigh!  So I grabbed the Holiday Accessories die and cut out the mitt and the small circle.  I placed the mitt and the circle on the presents to look like Santa was completely engulfed in the presents on the sleigh with only the top of his hat one one mitt sticking out.  This is optional but I think it gives a little more action to the tree-skirt.  You could also use the bow on the Holiday Accessories die to add a bow to the present heap but again I thought that it got a bit fussy for my taste and i really like how this one is simple and flowing.


Next I free-motion quilted the reins using black thread and a very fine zig-zag stitch to join the reindeer and the sleigh together.  I love the movement the reins give to the piece.  It makes the whole thing flow.  I thought about adding cording but I figured that with the hustle and bustle of Christmas morning that cording might not last too long before it was pulled off.

You will need to cut bias binding for this since because of the circle in the middle.  If you need a tutorial on cutting bias binding you can find one here.

Well there it is!  I hope that you have enjoyed my tutorial to make this tree-skirt.  You could easily embellish this more that I have - with bells and ribbons etc - it is all up to you!

Ok now onto the GIVE-AWAY!!!

How would you like to win all the applique shapes needed for this tree-skirt?  The sleigh, the reindeer and presents all pre-fused and die-cut?  I debated doing the background fabric as well but since I started thinking about a blue sky or a night sky instead of the white I thought that I would leave that up to you!  LOL

Ok here's the fine print!

For one chance to win you can comment on this post.  Tell me anything about Christmas past or present.  Do you have a tree-skirt?  Did you make it - or are you thinking about making this one?

For a second chance to win, become a follower and leave another comment here for a second entry.  If you already follow my blog that's fine just leave a comment here telling me that you do.

For a third chance to win like me on Facebook and leave another comment here.  Again, if you already like me on Facebook just tell me so in a comment.

Every comment is your entry - 1 comment one entry ;-)

Please, please make sure your blogger is not set to no-reply!!!!  Please see my previous post here on how to make sure that you are not a no-reply blogger!  If a no-reply blogger is chosen then I will be forced to draw another name and I really don't want to do that!

The winner will be chosen on Sunday to give everyone a chance to enter! Good luck everyone!

Don't forget to visit all the other blogs on the hop!  There are some great tutorials offered.

Here is the line up for this blog hop:

I made a tree skirt 18 years ago from some fabric my parents brought back from Norway. It had 8 scenes of Norwegian Christmas that I fashioned into an octogon tree skirt. I accidentlally left it in the bag with the old fake tree I gave to my son since he is in his first home, so now I need something new!

In the early 80's I started to make a hook rug tree skirt and I hated doing it.... and a friends son said he wanted to try and he finished it for me.....so now I still use it....and it is pretty ugly, but he put so much work and love into it....I can't get rid of it.....

Very cute tree skirt! I'm not sure what I would use the appliques for maybe a tree skirt for my daughter or a wall hanging for me. I already have three tree skirts so that covered. I love Christmas and put three trees. Nice after they're decorated, bet a bit over-whelming before. Thanks so much for the chance on your giveaway!

Ruth Ann said...

I am currently making a tree skirt for the first time, without a pattern! Wish I'd used a pattern...I never thought about an octagon. I love my scrappy triangle trees, but they are hard to set into a circle. Oh well, I'll just continue to put some batting in between the front and back and that will help take up some of the bulges. I really like your reindeer!

CathyG said...

I love your tree skirt, i have an old tree skirt and yours would really liven up the place. Already liked you on facebook before!

Great little tree skirt!

One Christmas I was way overwhelmed with work, crafting, etc... I was also informed by the family that I would be hosting Christmas dinner. So on Christmas eve I was crazy busy and when everything was said and done I had everything completed except for putting up the Christmas tree. (I told you I was busy!) Well, if you have Christmas dinner at your house you can't do it without a tree... So I used a wall in my living room that didn't have anything in front of it and put up a pretend tree. I took a bunch of 3" green ribbon and pinned it to the wall in a tree shape. I then added a bunch of package bows to the "tree" for the ornaments. I then pinned my tree skirt to the wall at the base of the tree, and then I shoved all my presents up to the wall so it looked like they were "under" the tree. It looked great and my family laughed when they saw it. And my cats loved it since the "bow" ornaments were just more fodder for their play. It took them all of one day to make sure the tree was denuded of bows!

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Thanks for the great giveaway!

Yes, I have a tree skirt but, I had wanted to make a new one this year since the one I have now is from the early 1980's. I made that one too but, in all honesty, I really don't like it now and besides the fact that it now clashes with my new purple Christmas tree. LOL I have not been able to make one yet though for a number of reasons.

I would LOVE to win this. It's so pretty. Thanks for the chance to do so.

pugmom said...

My Christmas tree skirt was made from a quilt from my Grandparents farm. The quilt was hand made by my Grandmother who had rhuematoid arthritis since her 20's. When I found the quilt it was literally falling apart and this was the only way I could think to salvage any part of the quilt. I am 60 and my poor Christmas tree skirt is sadly coming apart. It is time for me to make a new one.

What Comes Next? said...

cute tree skirt. My tree skirt is probably 25 years old and was a gift from my mother. It is time for a new one!

Mom C said...

I like your tree skirt and I appreciate your clear directions. I have a piece of deep red velvet that has been my tree skirt for hundreds of years. Probably time to do something about it. I think about it every year but it hasn't been high on my priority list. Thanks.

Anna said...

wow...that is a reallllly cute tree skirt!!!

My first quilting class was a Christmas Tree skirt, back in 1991!!!

I love home made objects as Christmas decorations. They feel like they add a touch of Christmas past...tree skirts I have made, santas made by my mother in law, and school ornaments made by the children just to name a few.

I desperately need a tree skirt, but have been busy making presents instead! I love those Accuquilt shapes! And I just became a follower. Thanks!

I have been wanting to make tree skirts for a couple of years now. Winning this might give me the push to actually do it!
