    P.S. IMHO, your floor is way to clean to be a quilter. Not one speck of dust. I'm amazed! How do you do that?
    peace
    Thank you ! They are done on an embroidery machine. My floor is clean because yesterday my sewing room was a disaster and to save my life, I decided to tidy up! LOL!

    Yes, the whole tree is done in the hoop on an embroidery machine, piece by piece. As a new piece is made, the rest of the tree that's finished gets satin stitched down in place. The cream fabric - and the silver - is Kasha Lining, a beautiful satin-like fabric. The red with the shiny thingees is fabric I found at an East Indian fabric store for $3 a metre!

    The design is found at http://www.pjsinthehoop.com/?s=tree-mendous&x=0&y=0
    You need a 6x10 hoop. The first one takes awhile but after that, one can cut the pieces much faster and not as accurate as long as you have plenty to hold well in the hoop.

    Those are gorgeous. I love the silver and red especially.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place...the End Times.
