Holly Tree Skirt

This summer one of my cousins was in town for a visit and she said she liked my star tree skirt so well she made her own. I was flattered.

We chatted for quite a bit on different ideas of how to quilt it. As a part of that conversation I offered to quilt it for her. And even better she gave me free reign on the quilt design.

Here is the gorgeous top. Of course I am a little biased as red is my FAVORITE color!

Holly Tree SkirtI love quilting feathers. And they look so festive. Plus they are FAST and I really wanted to get this back to my cousin soon! So all the arms of the star got a feather swirl.Holly Tree Skirt

The holly blocks received a much simpler treatment. Each of the red logs got either ribbon candy, holly leaves or up/down lines. And a simple stipple in the white areas.Holly Tree SkirtIts really hard to see the quilting on the top of the quilt, so I too an image of the back as well. Here you can really see the feathers and a little bit of the detail work in the blocks.Holly Tree SkirtI am happy with how it turned out, and hopefully my cousin is as well!

She also sent me two holly table runners. Those are up next on Millie!
