Two years ago, I made this tree skirt for my son and daughter in law. ( December 2016)
Additionally, I pieced a 2nd one at the same time. It has been sitting.
It was initially made with the intention of going to a niece. But stayed in the undone pile.
Last week I got it out and took it to retreat to begin the finishing for a different wedding on June 9 for another niece. So, the piecing is done ( It is from a Quilting World magazine.)
And I layered it quilted it with straight lines in red thread during retreat.
I have now added the binding to the outside perimeter. Last night I hand stitched it all the way around.
Last steps: add the gold garland by using a decorative stitch on my machine. DONE! See above.
Cut the center and slit and add the binding there. Add ties. Lastly hand stitch it and add a label. ( Something I have been remiss in doing in the past.)
Goal to have it done this weekend!
