Joyful Jelly Roll Tree Skirt from FAT QUARTER SHOP!

Hi, thanks for stopping by!

I was super excited to get to play with this fun new pattern from Fat Quarter Shop. Those ladies are so talented and come up with such fun projects. This was no exception.

The Joyful Jelly Roll Tree Skirt is a gorgeous pattern that goes together quickly and will look adorable in any fabrics.



I put the top together in an afternoon and it's sat that way ever since. You see, I started sewing and my mind started wandering.

  I just made a tree skirt last year so I don't really need another one....

But this fabric is so cute and the style is different from my other one.... 

I could just change them out every other year.... 

Or maybe gift it to a family member or friend.

You know how it is. The thoughts kept coming. And then, in usual Emily fashion I just decided to do something completely different. I'm going to leave my top whole and make a table topper.




The size of the finished skirt is nice and generous and fits my table nicely. Now I just have to figure out how to finish it so I still get a quilty look but it has a nice drape like a table cloth. Any suggestions?

You can get the pattern for Fat Quarter Shop's Joyful Jelly Roll Tree Skirt HERE. They also have kits and backing sets available made from the adorable Jingle collection by Kate Spain  (Love her!)


And in normal Fat Quarter Shop style they have an awesome video tutorial to go along with the pattern on YouTube with all sorts of fun tips and tricks for you as you sew your tree skirt.


If you're wondering about the delicious fabric I chose for my Joyful Jelly Roll Tree Skirt (or table topper) here it is-


The moment I saw this fabric I was itching to sew with it and then Fat Quarter Shop contacted me and I knew it was perfect. Those foxes! And I love the circle and half-square triangle prints. But they're all gorgeous and "festive". Then again, I love everything Tamara Kate designs. Festive Forest is available from Michael Miller Fabrics and is in stores now!

Did you know yesterday marked 6 months until Christmas? So what are you waiting for!?

When I make a table runner and I want it to lay flat I don't add batting.
