Yesterday I posted about a tree skirt that I started.
after I got the top finished I realized that I needed batting to finish it…and there was NO WAY I would go to the store on Black Friday. I put up the tree instead. I will add the skirt when it is finished.
The tree is all white…..Icicles and birds
I lost count of the number of icicles , there are 4 different kinds and I think the total number is something like a bazillion.
It is hard to get a good picture of a tree. Low light photography is not my thing, but here are some pictures (click pictures to enlarge)
I decided to forget going to the store for batting. I had a package of batting that I cut down (I should be able to get 3 more tree skirts out of it and I have the fabric to do it). I was planning to machine quilt it but decided to hand quilt it with perle cotton thread.
I am a bit past the half way point.
I hope to finish the quilting today ….and maybe also do the binding. When it is all done I will write-up the instructions….and perhaps make a few more.
next time I hope to have finished product pictures….and have the Luxury Essentials quilt started
