    I have read the message board for some time, but never written in. You are the most wonderful sharing group I have ever joined.

    Does anyone have directions for quilting small Christmas tree ornaments? I don't know if there is such a thing, but if there is, I know someone out there will let us know.
    Thanks and Happy October to all.

    Do you want to sew them or make some that look quilted? I used to make these all the time. No pic right now

    Hello Maryann

    This is a little decoration I made with my group here in the city last year as part of our Christmas gift exchange. It was a pattern I followed from a German Patchwork magazine.
    The Tree button I added as an extra LOL.

    Welcome Maryanne. Like zennia, I too make mini quilt blocks say 3 to 5 inches in size; then sandwich with a backing and flannel. Can bind (more work) or just sew around sides and leave opening to turn. Doing some now!

    Greetings from Eastern Tennessee, Maryanne!! Nice to have you joining us.
    I saw some darling ornaments made of yo yos when I went to the National Quilt Expo in Knoxville. Ladies from one of the guilds were making them and selling kits. they used red and white striped fabric and made candy canes, then there were stockings, and then someone made yoyos in graduated sizes and stacked them to make darling Christmas trees.

    this is a real cute yo-yo tree ornament

    http://www.oelke.com/people/anne/yoyo.htm
    this cute little yo-yo tree can also be a pin cushion

    http://www.clover-usa.com/media/document/CT0039.pdf
    this is an adorable little stand up tree

    While these are all adorable, my first reaction to your question was to suggest doing tiny blocks, using Rhonda's wonderful templates and instructions! What a great way to test out her methods without committing yourself to a full quilt of tiny blocks. And if you made 2 blocks, sewed faces together, turned then lightly stuffed, you wouldn't need binding! You could add a couple beads to "quilt" the layers, or do just a simple stitch in the ditch thing.

    Good luck finding what you want. Be sure to show us!

    Here is the pattern I use for the folded Christmas ornament. It's very easy to follow. I learned to use good straight pins, not the cheap ones. The cheap ones will not go into the styrofoam easily at all.

    These are for English paper piecing.

    This site also has different Christmas decoarations, but this was the one I found first, just type Christmas in the search box.

    When my children were little I sewed ornaments for our tree. There were birds, candy canes, trees, wreaths, mittens and boots It was very difficult to find pretty fabric 25 years ago, so I liked only a few of them. I think they were from better homes and gardens. Our daughter received a small quilted block for an ornament from her 4-h leader who at the time was teaching quilting. I don't have them handy or I would post a picture.
