I simply have to inspire you to get ready for Christmas by showing you some of the ah-mazing quilted Christmas tree skirts that people are sewing up after watching my online video class. Check these out:
Amy Smart (of Diary of a Quilter) is working on a tree skirt with gold and white fabrics. It’s not quilted yet but it’s already gorgeous!!! I can’t wait to see it when she’s finished.
Becky (who blogs at Patchwork Posse) finished her tree skirt in a lovely primitive palette. It’s perfect for a mountain cabin Christmas! I live in Florida, but I can dream, right?
Heather (from the Sewing Loft) decided to make a table topper version by reducing the size of the star blade template. Now I totally have to do this for my holiday table! See how she did it here.
But that’s not the smallest one I’ve seen… Heidi (of Fabricmutt) stitched up this tiny one. I LOVE it!!!
Damjana (who blogs at Apple Green Cottage) whipped up this lovely modern Christmas tree skirt in reds and pinks. I can just see this with a beautiful white flocked tree. ❤️
But that’s not all… This tree skirt sewn by class member kfly24 blows me away. It’s simply breathtaking!
I can’t help it… I love all of the student tree skirts. It’s so much fun to see a new one show up every few days. My Quilted Tree Skirt video class is so fast and easy, It uses a jelly roll of fabric so you can get right down to sewing first thing – yay! You still have PLENTY of time to get this done before Christmas.
And make sure you post a picture to the class member project page because it makes me so happy to look.
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.

At my daughter Chloe’s high school (can you believe my baby started high school???), the lunch lines are so long that she has been skipping lunch! She’s always starving by the time she gets home because she doesn’t want to carry a big lunch bag as well as her heavy backpack – poor girl!
I am so in love with the beautiful look of simple patchwork quilts with lots of squares. This is the perfect way to use up fabric scraps like I did, or you can make a beautifully coordinated quilt with pre-cut 2 1/2’’ square fabric pieces that come in mini-charm packs.
I’m also in love with the process. If you feel like quilt making is your escape from the world and sitting down to sew for a few hours makes your troubles fade away… this is the quilt for you!
Sew an easy beautiful apron with this free sewing pattern that only uses one yard of fabric! Whether you are sewing for yourself or for a friend, an apron always comes in handy and makes a great gift. This blog post includes a link to a free template that I digitized for you.

There are so many great book reviews going on right now! I was very excited to be invited to join in the fun for Sumiko Fujita’s 318 Patchwork Patterns. This book is not new. It was originally published in Japanese in 2005. After being out of print and hard to find for years, World Book Media has finally released an English version.
Would you like to know how to bind your quilt with your sewing machine? Let me show you all my tricks. As I have grown to love modern quilts, and as the time I have to make them has become less and less – I opt to sew my quilt binding on all by machine now – and it looks beautiful!
Let’s talk about color value. Harnessing the power of color value can make key elements in your quilts really pop! It can make your quilts go from ok to amazing. Here’s a free pattern for a Pinwheel mini quilt, plus lots of tips for using color value to make all your quilts showstoppers!
Sew the cutest thread spool quilt with my free Spool Quilt Pattern and guess what – you can use pre-cut charm squares! This fast and easy throw quilt pattern is perfect for beginner quilters or someone like me (ahem!) who…
what a great selection of tree skirts! Actually, I don’t even like mine the most – admire the uniqueness of kfly24’s quilt. And love how Heather transformed the pattern to fit the table topper size (oh and the vivid colors!) Can’t wait for your Quilt Market post 🙂
