The Quilted Tree Skirt class taught be Caroline Fairbanks-Critchfield



Hi friends! My friend Caroline at Sew Can he has a new class at Craftsy. It's called The Quilted Tree Skirt. I wanted to share it with you because I think it is so darn cute. It's a Christmas tree skirt made with strip piecing so it goes together fast. It's so fast to put together that Craftsy is calling this a mini class so it's only 9.99. Pretty good right?

Here is the tree skirt sewn up in brights, I love those colors.


Here's a link to the class,  if you're interested you can watch a preview of it, Caroline is a great teacher. And right now the class is 50% off. No coupons necessary.

I will admit, as I write this, I am blown away that it's already that time of the year to start sewing for the holidays. They are right around the corner. 

Have a great day,
Jennifer
