    Two Double Diamonds Holiday Wallhangings

    I saw these patterns in the LQS last Spring and just had to make them. The first one is of the Christmas Star and the second is of the Christmas Tree.

    Can see why you had to make them they are really interesting and I just want to get up close and see how they are made. They will be a treat to get out at Christmas time year after year, you will never get sick of saying with pride " I made them".

    The Christmas tree is my favorite, although I suspect the star probably is more impressive as when you can physically see it. Job well done. Take a bow.

    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I made them with the Double Diamonds Ruler. You take two pieces of fabric and fuse them, wrong sides together, and then fold them in half, line the ruler up on the fold and make a few slits. Then, the diamonds just fold down. They were super easy!

    I purchased the Double Diamond Ruler last year. Made a notebook cover using them and really haven't made anything else with it. Makes me want to haul it out and do something new with it.....course that's AFTER I clear up some of my UFO's and Christmas projects!!

    Love the simplicity of color and how it enhances the design ... gorgeous!
