This is the beautiful Christmas tree skirt that Fran made for her daughter's 12 foot tree!
From point to point, it measures 83" by 83". We used Fran's gold Isacord thread on the top and So Fine thread in mustard in the bobbin. This is the first time I've used Isacord on the longarm and it worked beautifully.
These were the 3 preliminary sketches for quilting. Fran chose the design on the right.
I actually quilted it in September so she had plenty of time to bind it and add the opening to wrap around the base of the tree.
Just off the longarm and ready to trim the batting and backing.
Isn't that beautiful?! Thanks to Fran for this wonderful quilting opportunity!
My favorite way to express my creativity is with fabric. Join me as I share my journey with you. I hope you'll be inspired to create something too!
