    Does anyone have an idea on making quilted Christmas ornaments? I need to make about 20, so should get started on something as soon as I can.

    Good for you to be thinking ahead.
    Felt ornaments are pretty easy and fun to make. I just find a clipart image to use the outline as a pattern, then cut, embroider, sequin,blanket stitch the edges and stuff. Try doing a google image search for felt ornaments to get ideas.

    The doll I have as my picture is ornament sized. I made crazy quilt body, embroidered and beaded then inset the face. Here is the Christmas version.

    If you want very very simple:
    Fuise two holiday print fabric between a heavy pellon (preferably fusiable pellon) You will need another fusiable on the unfuised side. Make a large layer of fabric.
    Use cookie cutters for design or other pattern. Draw around around and cut out. open a small section and insert another piece of fusiable and your hanging ribbon and refuise.

    Another is make balls using (I believe a pentagon shape) and English type piecing. Stuff and hang.

    I have used this last technique to make larger balls out of double knit for children's play balls.

    If you use the paper pieced balls, and if I can find them I will send you some shapes already printed on lightweight card stock.

    Thank you. The face is hand embroidered on a flesh tone fabric like ultra suede using a single thread, then I used brush on blush.
