    Christmas Fun

    I just finished this wall hanging. My husband named it. These were suppose to be placemats. I thought they would be to small so this is my design. Don't look to close. I emblished everything with lt of stuff like buttons, fur, ribbon, glitter, large white ric rack and more.Name:  IMG_2017.jpg

    I think it is soooooo cute!!! Very rustic looking! Did you have a pattern or make it from scratch?

    Jcrow, i made from scratch but had to change things around. It started as a table runner and was to long so I cut in four and sewed back together as a wall hanging. I wish I could send a bigg picture. I will try right now. Thanks for all the compliments. It needs some more quilting but I don't want to ruien it. I have not done FMQ yet.Name:  IMG_2018.jpg

Size:  56.5 KB I think it would look better with more quilting. Maybe a couple weights on bottom so it hangs straight or will the quilting take care or this. Any suggestions? please

    Very cheerful as well as cute. Turning into a wall hanging was a great idea.

    I took my Xmas Fun quilt to the quilting guild today as show and tell and Our treasurer came up tome afterwards and offered to do some meandering on between the fun things for me. I was so happy about this.

    Maybe you could block it. That means spraying it until lightly damp and then pinning it flat, either on your ironing board or on the carpet or on something else flat and letting it dry. It should dry flat. Cute idea.

    Sew cute! I would just add another little rod pocket on the bottom and run a dowel through it. That way, when you are ready to put it away after the holidays, you can just roll it up on the dowel, and there won't be any wrinkles to iron out next year.

    Very nice!! I would love to make one like that! I might have to put a Nativity soon, too. That's where/why Christmas started.

    Thank you for this idea, I have lots of dowels and that may help it hang straighter at the bottom.
