Almost Half Done Quilting Christmas Tree Skirt

I'm just about to the halfway point on the Christmas tree skirt.

Micro-stippling around the ornament

Ornament pattern is from a book my sister gave me called 'Iris Paper-Piecing'.  It was originally a hot-air balloon with a basket under it; I added a point (seen in previous post) to what was supposed to be the top of the balloon, and a hanging loop to the other.

I split this block diagonally, as this will be where the slit is.

Poinsettia block now rolled forward and completed.

Manger block now completed.

Four blocks and three star rays are quilted.  I'll finish it next week.
