    Join this online class to make your decorative tree skirt using one of our applique designs. You can make any size base to suit your tree and then decorate it with as much or as little as you want. You can even use your own pieced blocks instead of applique. Ruth will show you how. Included in this class are easy methods of quilting using either straight stitch quilting or free-motion techniques.

    For all designs:

    Background using 1 fabric only: 2-1/2 yds [3 yds; 4 yds] 
    OR 
    Background using 2 fabrics: Outer fabric: 1-1/2 yds [1-7/8 yds; 2-1/2 yds] & Inner fabric: 1 yd [1-1/8 yds; 1-1/2 yds] 

    Binding Fabric: 2/3 yd [3/4 yd; 1-1/4 yd] 
    Batting & backing fabric at least 4" larger than quilt size 
    Thread for piecing and quilting 
    8-10 snaps (or snap tape) OR velcro OR 2yd ribbon for closure 
    Sewing machine and accessories 
    General quilting supplies such as rotary cutter, mat, and rulers 
    Wedge Ruler (optional but useful) - wedge template is supplied in pattern 

    For all Applique designs: 
    1-1 1/2yd fusible webbing 
    Machine embroidery thread to match applique fabrics 
    Teflon Sheet, parchment paper, or baking paper 
    Lightbox maybe useful 

    Note: The following amounts are only a guideline for purchasing applique fabrics. You may use a larger variety of fabrics in which case the yardage will be smaller. 

    Poinsettia Design: 
    4-6 fat eighths red fabrics for flowers 
    4 fat eighths of green for leaves 
    Scraps of yellow for flower centers 

    Holly Design:

    Scraps of red for berries 

    Snowflake Design:
