I had great fun making this wall hanging with this Yuletide Fir pattern by Susan of QuiltFabrication. I must admit there was some unstitching to be done, to get all the points as close as possible. But in the end, it was worth it.
Once the flimsy was together, I stood back and didn't like the gold fabric that I had used for the star. It was too light colored, and actually looked very similar to the tree trunk. I didn't take a photo of it, but suffice it to say, I ripped out the star piece and restitched it with something that would stand out - a sparkly red!
I am happy to share that I bought this pattern this summer, and I actually made it up before it started gathering dust in my sewing studio. Go, me! It even works nicely for our living room coffee table! It measures about 17 x 21.
I've listed it for sale in my Etsy shop, Mountain Quiltworks, but I'm hoping it doesn't sell. I'd like it for myself! Maybe I'll just have to make another one.....
Quilting with a smile,
