Quilting a Tree Skirt

As a long arm quilter I am always up for a challenge, like when Marcia asked me to quilt her tree skirt.  I heard other quilters talk about quilting them so I knew it could be done. She embroidered on shining satin fabrics and sewed ties together from the recipients late relative.  I stitched in the ditch with Mono Poly clear thread between the ties, so it did not distract from the focal point of the skirt.  I wanted the ties to pop out and bring back memories of when they were worn.  I added a few swirls and piano keys around to finished out the quilting.  She provided cotton batting and I used red embroidered thread on the red fabric.  She received a red ribbon at the Common Threads quilt show in 2018.  Many asked about it and took pictures liking the idea of the ties being used in a quilted tree skirt.  Another great way to preserve memories.  Go create yours!
