It won't get done done but I got the two motifs done on each side. Close enough. I hate this project. It's cost me a fortune and I should have just bought a cheap tree skirt. I had such grand plans for it as well. Decorative stitching and embroidery motifs all around the skirt. I even bought navy blue rope to finish it off.
I finally said "Screw it" and spray basted the backing and velvet together. I won't be wearing it and it will have a backing.
You can see the curve around the bottom. The tree skirt has a diameter of 44 inches. I have two more blue birds sitting on a branch on each side and then roses going around. If I get that far.
No. It's not Christmas themed but I loved the design so much that I had to use it. It looked so luxerious with the velvet.
Now I need to get embroidery needles since size 75 shreds this thread. Those have to be specially ordered via the net since my stores don't carry them. Told you I hate having to special order simple things. Gripe. Gripe. No wonder quilt store owners duck when I come in..LOL.
I bought black Kona Cotton fabric for the Fiesta quilt today. I'll go through my stash and see what I have for the other colors. I love Kona fabric.
Ditch this project or keep going?
