Fat Quarter Shop : Top 10 Videos of 2015 : Day 6 Joyful Jelly Roll Tree Skirt

Today's quilt was awesome! It was so much fun watching Preeti make it in my studio! I totally loved it!

Today's quilt is actually a tree skirt. But we made it as a baby quilt. You can watch Kimberly's tutorial and download the pattern! This pattern will make a decent size tree skirt or a wonderfully scrappy baby quilt!

Preeti Tambade, my awesome intern made this one. She came to me almost 2 years back to learn how to make Hawaii Quilt. She has stuck to me since then, absorbing all she can. And now she can do almost anything that I can!When she started making this quilt, she was apprehensive about the piecing. But I just gave her a link to the video tutorial and the pattern and she took it from there. I loved watching her expressions change from "Is this woman insane to expect me to do this" to "Wow! I really could do it!"

Here's her quilt top. It is in her machine, FMQ in progress at the moment!

I love the scrappiness of this quilt! Maybe I will make another one some day with some colourful neutral!

Here are other quilters joining me today!

  1. Love the splash of colors! This would be a great on the table throw, even a small kid quilt. Did you see the one with the 3" border around it! It was amazing, would look so good with this.

  2. It's Heidi of Buttons and Butterflies. She did hers in soft colors and it also looks amazing.
