Quilting Mom's Tree Skirt

I've been working on the quilting for my mom's tree skirt this past week. I just need to finish up the border but haven't decided what I want to do in the border yet. For the star, I thought of it like a flower and quilted what I would call "echo petals" in each section.

On the background of the star I used a pattern from Leah Day's blog 365 days of free motion quilting filler designs. I think she called this one lollipop chains.

If you haven't checked out Leah's blog you need to do so! I may pick another of her designs for the border.

Lynn, it is looking really beautiful! I am always so scared to quilt things myself. Way to go! I love the fabrics in that tree skirt, too. Have a happy day sewing. I have yard work to do. :-(
