Triangle Tree Skirt – Quilting the Trees

I decided to start quilting on M’s quilt first, since the quilting design was the furthest along. The quilt has a modern feel to me. So I wanted to keep the quilting modern as well.

I had already design 8 different quilt designs to use in side the trees. All the tree designs were some combination of pebbles and squiggle lines.

There was quite a bit of open space in the center of the quilt. I had been thinking about doing concentric 8 point stars. Something like this:Not Your Normal Steam - Designing a tree skirt
But I wasn’t convinced. And what would I fill it with. N got this really cool gift called a boogie board. I take it borrow it while the kids have swim lessons and try out quilt motifs. Here were some, that I thought I might use.
