    Christmas Ornament Ideas

    Last year I started making an ornament for each one of my grandkids so they have them when they get older and can decorate their own tree. I am looking for new ideas and some pictures would be great.
    Thanks
    Karen

    Karen - Have you seen the ornaments posted on the 3rd Annual Christmas Ornament swap board. There are some really creative ones on there and they are all so beautiful! I am sure you can find something there. Good luck.

    If you are looking to sew paper pieced ones, there is a source you can use for tree ornaments. The Quilters Newsletter Magazine site has a current project called Christmas Flag. It is for making an American Flag with rows of tiny PP squares. The patterns are really cute and I am going to do a few as ornaments. You go to the magazine main site and click Web Extras. Look on the drop down menu for Christmas Flag and click on it. There are free PP patterns for the blocks until Nov. 6.

    My guild has a annual Christmas ornament swap. One thing I have made is stars from the center bits of Mariner's Compass patterns.

    I do the same thing, make ornaments or Christmas something each year and am running out of ideas. I did make Christmas balls that looked quilted though I can't remember what it is called, you fold the circle fabric in half then bring two ends to a point and pin into a ball with each layer overlapping and meeting half way from other side done the exact same way. Hummmm, I have no idea where to even tell you where the instructions for it are. Anyone else know what I am talking about?

    Go on YouTube and search for quilted ornaments. There are some pretty ones, and they are so easy and simple.
