    Christmas Tree (small wall hanging)

    Named this "The Night Before Christmas". It's 16" square and I used a free PP pattern from Forest Quilting called "Pine and Skirt". I wanted to add the wreaths so I embroidered them on dissolvable stabilizer, so they came out stiff to just tack on. Also, I enlarged the skirt part of the pattern 150% so it was as wide as the tree. My little sewing group did this as a challenge. 4 of us made it and they were all beautiful and so different. Another fun project. Thanks for looking......Donna

    Very cute - I agree, at first glance I saw a face! I like the edge of the tree skirt.

    It looks so sweet. I have been wanting to make something similar to this for my Mom who said she didn't want a tree in her house this year. I even have that pattern but had forgotten about it. Thank you so much for your beautiful reminder!

    Such wonderful and creative work. I have truly been inspired to try paper piecing as one can create such beautiful things.
