Sewing Project #1

I can now reveal that sewing project I was working on several weeks ago. Jill and Corey and Isaac and Irene put their Christmas tree up this morning.
The tree now has a new skirt. (Click photos to enlarge)
The panels are decorated with machine embroidery in snowflake designs in blue, silver and gold. Silver braid trim adds an extra sparkle.
The skirt is quilted and lined and finished with self bias edging.
With the Velcro closures Irene was able to claim it as a skirt for her.
But now it is in it's intended place.
Now it's time for me to start decorating.

  9. What a beautiful tree skirt (or skirt for Irene, whichever!). You are a master needlework artist, no getting around it. Your daughter and her family will be able to enjoy this tree skirt for years to come and pass it down as a family heirloom. I love gifts like this. (And I love doing a self-bias edging.)
