I finished one of the Christmas projects I was working on:
A little tree quilt that I will use to display my collection of Christmas tree brooches.
I cut out a muslin triangle and attached strips of green fabric.
Next I added ric-rac and lace trims
and sewed on the angled side pieces and trunk.
I cut out a bunch of squares to create the rest of the quilt top,
made my quilt "sandwich",
top stitched to hold it all in place
and sewed on a binding.
Beads, sequins and rhinestone buttons added sparkle and shine.
I searched through the Christmas decorations in the basement
and found my tree brooches.
There are plenty of empty squares, so my collection has room to grow.
(Santa always puts one in my stocking.)
I can't wait to hang this in the hallway come December!
