Ornament Countdown – Day 8
The journey continues on revealing an ornament from my collection (see related post).
Day 8: 2005 Quilted Tree
- Leftover quilt scraps (green, cream, red)
- Fabric glue
- Sewing machine (or hand sew)
Instructions: Start by cutting a 3.25 inch square of your background fabric for both the front and back (I used green on the back). Cut thing batting to same dimensions. Cut a 3/4-inch wide strip of your border fabric. Layer the background, batting and top together. With right sides together, line the border fabric up at the edge of your stack of fabric and sew ¼-inch from the edge, being careful to adjust for the corners. You will now have a layer of fabrics. Fold the border around the edge and stitch the back in the place by hand using a whip stitch. Cut out tree shape from green fabric and either sew or glue in place (I glued the tree). Then using green thread, stitch around the tree using a running stitch. Add a piece of ribbon for the bow on the top, and as a hanger for the ornament.
