Treeskirt

This is my 1000th post! I started blogging on November 28, 2007, because I wanted to write about my quilts. Looking at my labels today, there are only 76 posts about my quilts and 502 about embroidery, time changes things! To celebrate this milestone I return to the roots of my blog and share the pattern of my treeskirt.
It’s a paper piecing pattern, but I stitched it by hand on foundation (vlieseline L11). I searched online to find some good tutorials. Here’s a video tutorial, and this is a written tutorial. I pieced my pattern 8 times, 4 normal ones and 4 mirrored ones. Then I pieced them together to form a circle, but left the last side open. There I added ribbons to close my treeskirt. I finished it as a normal quilt. You can find my pattern here, where you can print it at the size you need.
