Jelly Roll Rug/Christmas Tree Skirt

Christmas time is such a magical time of year! The Jelly Roll Rug Tree Skirt will add a beautiful, individualized look to your Christmas décor or give one as a special gift to cherished people on your list.  The pattern, by Roma Lambson, has instructions for 3 sizes - small 26" diameter (uses 20 strips), medium 38" diameter (uses 40 strips) and large 54" diameter (uses 80 strips).

If you prefer, you can also make the Jelly Roll Rug in this class instead of the Tree Skirt.

This is a two session class using either the Jelly Roll Rug Tree Skirt or the Jell Roll Rug pattern by Roma Lambson and RJ Designs.  In the first session we will prep the strips and the in the second session we will sew the rug together.

Size 110/18 Jeans Sewing Machine Needle

1 large spool of thread, such as Aurifil, (at least 1200 yds or 2000 yds for the larger projects) 50 wt to coordinate or contrast with your fabric.  It’s a great time saver in class if you have 4-5 bobbins pre-wound and ready to go for class. 


The Gypsy Quilter Jelly Roll Tube Maker is optional but will make sewing the strips and the batting together much easier.  (available at Lyons Quilting)


Wonder Clips are optional.  It will make sewing the strips and the batting together easier if you don’t have the Jelly Roll Tube Maker.  (available at Lyons Quilting)


Mary Ellen’s Best Press  (available at Lyons Quilting)


Sewing machine with zigzag ability (the zigzag stitch will be used in the second class)

  •         If you have an extended table base for your machine this will aid in keeping your rug flat.  Bring to the second class if you have one.

Marking pencil – light or dark dependent on your fabric
