    Hi all :D . I wanted to do a little something for everyone for Christmas. As I am so far away sending all my friends a little something just isn't possable so I hope you enjoy these instead :P Patterns for all these are posted further down in the thread. This is also my way of saying thankyou for all the encouragement, friendships and laughs I've had since I've been on the board here :thumbup: .

    Thanks for everything and have a very Merry Christmas

    Below are the Patterns for the Christmas tree ornaments. I would reccomend the 3" and the oval star for experianced piecers who enjoy a challenge, the 4" is less demanding. If you are relatively new to this method try the larger sizes posted further on in this thread and work your way down to the smaller sizes.

    I added a ribbon for a hanger and bound these with bias, an alternative would be to bag, turn and stuff with a little batting.

    Below is included the patterns for an 8 & 10 inch circular star the 8" is a great size for a pot holder and I have made the 10" into a placemat, you could also make a matching 4" to use as a coaster

    Also below are foundation piecing intructions for anyone who would like them. I haven't include cutting directions for the fabric because there are so many different sizes, also cutting needs vary with the quilter. I recomend that you start out with quite large pieces if you are new to foundation piecing, as you get the hang of it you will be able to work out how much allowance you need to give yourself.

    I really hope you enjoy these and have a very Merry Christmas :P

    Thank you for these, Shelly. I love your fabric choices. I'll save these patterns to make a whole batch next Christmas. It doesn't look like I'll make it this year.

    Thank you ShellyQ! It is nice of you to share with us, and you do really good work. I have yet to master making pot holders. Making such tiny ornaments must have been challenging!

    Have a Merry Christmas yourself!
