I have had a quilt on my bed for years and years that has held up to 3 babies.  Unfortunately it was not able to hold up to a high energy puppy that gets the zoomies.  The first few tears on the quilt I was able to repair, but when the tears were tearing and I had to retire my beloved quilt.

Use a quilting ruler, draw a triangle (or tree shape) with erasable fabric ink, on a doubled up piece of the quilt.  Cut along the lines with sharp fabric scissors.

Sew along the edges with a sewing machine, or hand sew with a running stitch.  Make sure to leave the bottom of the tree open.

I had this piece of wood in my stash, so I drilled 3 holes to fit 3 dowels.  I love this cute little tree stand!  And I love that it reminds me of the quilt that sat on my bed for years!
