It is quilted, but I don't think by hand. You have good eyes, spotting the quilt I use for a window covering. It has a large star on it. I like the stars on the skirt. My living room and kitchen have lots of different stars hanging on the walls. The Texas star, doncha know LOL!Is that a hand quilted tree skirt? (thought it might be as there is quilt in the background in the photo). It is lovely.
